I don't exactly remember how many revisions there have been, but why would my build date be of relevance? Is it possible I already have a BG pump?

dude, it's not uncommon for mfgrs to change suppliers half way through the year... or to change the design of a part here and there.

BTW, I have a 2012, build date of 4/2012, AND mine is NOT ON THE LIST.

thanks.

mere speculation, but perhaps VW changed design/ suppliers for build year 2012, or first half of build year 2012... perhaps, but doesn't make a whole lotta sense seeing as though there are many 2011s and 2013s on the list.

Would like other 2012's to chime in please.

Mines a 2012 but is not yet on the list. I'm not sure of the build date.

Anyone know if the service action is for both CBFA and CCTA engines? Humble Mechanic only mentions the part number for the CBFA engine (-BG). The service action doesn't show up for my 2012 CCTA.

I know that parts do change, but the BG part is the latest revision. Even if I had an updated one from the factory, the BG would still be a higher revision than I have in there now. Plus, like what was mentioned earlier, I know some 2013's and 14's are on the list as well.

Mine's a 2012 and it's on the list. I'd have to check the build date later today but pretty sure it's 2011.

In case people was wondering, another dude on Garden State Euro's posted pics of his replacement. Apparently this is what was said as he was right there with the mechanic at VW as it was being replaced and snapping pics which he provided on GSE.

"the replacement which is reinforced with a metal plate instead of plastic."

Not sure if your on this forum...

I had mine replaced a few days ago and specifically asked for the most recent revision. They gave me the BG and said that no one has came back with a faulty BG pump that they have seen.

Well, let's see how long that lasts. Of course no one is going to come back within a week. Lol
