Funny, when describing the install in the video at first, it was described as a fairly complicated install. Then later described as not too hard of an install.


My GTI has ~89,000 miles on it.. I wonder if I should go ahead and replace this. To my knowledge, the cooling system has never been serviced.


Anyone know how this kit is any different than what urotuning or DAP are offering? https://www.shopdap.com/water-pump-k...-2-0t-tsi.html

Not sure which version you have but my understanding is that our water pumps (especially the older versions) are time bombs. I have MY13; mine was replaced with an updated version under warranty @ 12,000 miles; I was thankfully able to limp my way to the dealership when it happened.

The kit from Shopdap looks the same I think?

The only reasons a stock water pump fails is either poor installation, which is more common than you would expect, and over revving the engine.

I don't see any benefits from this other than it will absorb more heat from your engine. plastic is a horrible transferer of heat, and why the OEM housing is plastic.

FCP Euro also offers lifetime warranty on anything you buy from them including wear and tear items. OEM parts that work...
