The Q7 had 164,000 km on it when it died..
Unfortunately not, so I can’t really say anything about the condition of my old pump... However, I also had the ”AB” version that has been evaluated as the most fault-prone version earlier in this thread.Good advice Naturist. Did u disassemble the old one to inspect innards by any chance? Cheers Sam.
Yes we will. Mine blew up 2 1/2 weeks ago with 136K miles on it. Replaced the entire system, now they can't get the car to run. Stating compression is low in one bank. Runs but runs rough and when they remove battery charger it dies. ??? WTF?There haven't been any from VW or Bosch as they insist that it is a user problem with people misfuelling ( see conclusions in the PDF I attached). Sadly I think he truth is that this again is another example of the Repulsive Corporate Arrogance we have seen from this company in recent times. How could there ever be anything wrong with their Teutonic Engineering Perfection? I could only be caused by Dumb Ignorant Owners! Really ???!!!!
The whole conclusion is premised around water of petrol (gasoline) contaminated fuel. However this paper was based on data that is now between 3 to 6 years old. In the intervening period, cars have started to develop some quite "high" mileage (km) readings. As we have seen locally the first production units, based around MY2008 are now starting to go "BOOM", I wonder if we will see this also happen to MY2009 - MY2010 vehicles as they age to a similar point.
I don't claim to be expert in anything to do with this subject, however I believe it is reasonable to observe and draw conclusions.
New HPFP Fitted..Hopefully another 200,000 km's without needing to think about again.
VolksRepair charged me AU$ 2,300 for the job which was really good considering VW wanted AU$2,195 for the part alone, Job took just under the quoted time, so I an very happy with the result. Great shop, nice blokes to work with and I recommend them to any locals needing work.
We fitted a 059 130 755 BK pump which is one release back from the current 059 130 755 BS as the BS unit is nil stock in AU and would have needed to be shipped from Germany, with a 10 day delivery. I needed to truck back on the next week, so after bouncing it around amongst some of our fellow forum members, I went with Version N-1. Considering my original pump was 059 130 755 AB, which is I believe about N-10, I feel quite comfortable.

Me thinks, timing belt on HPFP was done wrong and threw off timing. Anyway, I have done everything to avoid this issue and now it finally happened (I never got to replacing it as a maintenance item, stupid me.) Now am I not only sitting here with no car after entire fuel system was replaced by VW but now I think they screwed up my motor in the process. Car is 837 miles from me too. It's been a total nightmare to deal with VW. I don't think they have expertise in this vehicle either.
Hi Matt,Stuart reading this previous post a while from a while ago im trying to follow through and do what you and Tony have done.
I am trying to understand the pump replaced. I recall you went with another CP4.... yet you mention 059 130 755 BK above BK being the pump you went with.
Is there somewhere you previously posted about the differences in the CP4 pump or this was private chate or camp grund banter ?
appreciate your insight
Sure, Complete fuel system under warranty, new head and camshaft as it threw timing. I don't have much on specifics as the car was 1100 miles away at a dealer where it broke down.I know this is a very old thread, but cp4 does NOT need timed just FYI
What ever happened with this particular car, can you tell us how/if you got it fixed?
