Jeff Hancock: I have a 2004 Beetle with a fuel pump under the rear seat and I've been priming the cylinders since last summer by turning the key to the on position for 5 seconds, 5 times and then starting it. Now, it just stalls after it burns off that gas. I turned the key to the on position and tested for voltage across various pins but they were jumping around. Do I really have to test for voltage since I already replaced the fuel pump relay and the fuel filter but still the same problem. What do you think?
Fadi Matti: How do still having power on the fuel pump conecteor when the car is off , isn't supposed the realy to cut the power after 2 or 3 second pf turning the ignition on ?

Marty Meyer: Getting ready to go this now on a 01 325i.
VDO/Siemens manufacturers this part for BMW. You can save $30-$50 buy ordering on a BMW online parts specialist like ECSTuning or BavAuto.com, instead of buying from a dealer.
I would also advise to replace the fuel pump gasket, it's another $19.00 on top of the $180 for the pump, but it's 10+years old, and I don't want to open it up in there and find out it's deformed or just rotted. There is also a $2 gasket part no. 1614 1183 543 on the in tank hose that attaches from the jet pump to the fuel pump.
If you mess up the hose connector clip thingy, you can use a generic hose clamp, which will make it easier to do 60,000 miles from now when you do it again.
The "jet pump" moves the fluid between both sides of your tank.
Save yourself a boatload of money! Does this yourself. You only need a 10mm ratchet, screwdriver, and wire cutters.
E46Fanatics has a step by step available with photos but no video, if you think you need it. If your not a member there and own and E46 you need to be. Not much a DIYer with NO mechanic skills can't fix on these cars, if you can follow directions.
arsenio ovs: thank you for video, Im a big Fan of EdzGarage
Marty Meyer: Well done video. In most enthusiast circles this item is considered a Preventative Maintenance item, in other words, it's going to fail sooner or later, either at the car's convenience or your's. If original, they are 10 years old at least, estimated lifespan is 60K miles, I would also advise on changing the filter underneath the car as well, quite a few video are available on YouTube. Dealers and some independents charge as much as $1,000, the part can be had for $150 and is an easy DIY.
You will have less chance of issues,if you reinstall the big round black seal/gasket onto the tank, instead of the pump, before reinstalling the pump. there are more than a few reports of difficulty reinstalling the pump and vacuum leaks caused by misinstallation of that gasket. It's not difficult, you just need to make sure you're reinstalling correctly.
jeremiah barnes: Does this also work with a 2001 Chrysler Sebring lxi my girl pump is also located under the rear seat from what I am told if you could help me out I wouldn't much appreciate it
djchaney1: My '06 330i has just started being hard to crank... it is worse some days than others. It seems like it might be harder on cold days, but I am not sure. Also, when it gets close to half a tank it will start skipping really bad. It always stops when I fill the tank up. Any ideas? Thank you so much! : )
4272005: Didn't you miss a nut on the fuel pump cover ?
Greg Abate: Very helpful! I'm only reading about 6 volts from the fuel pump connection (battery is charged and reading 14v). Pump is new and car still won't start. Wondering if it has something to do with this low voltage reading. Any ideas?
