I also forgot to mention the factory radio is no where to be seen and I would like to be able to use my steering wheel controls for the factory bose system. Does anyone know a good radio that will allow me to use the steering controls? The 6 disc changer is also still in the trunk.

well, Bad news, I am not hearing the fuel pump come on when I go to start the car and it does not want to start. I have read it could be the pump or the ecu. Rather than try and gully it out. I am going to attempt to jump the pump with power and see if that works, if not then out comes the pump. If it does work then out comes the ECU.

ok guys, I am thinking I am gonna buy new computers for the car just to not have to worry about them due to the water I orriginally found in the ecu compartment. My ECU has the numbers 4d0 907 557 D and my TCM has the numbers 4d0 927 156 AN , What numbers do I need to watch for with replacement computer and what letters or numbers dont matter?

ok well I put power top the pump and nothing, seems the pump is gone, the little I heard it idle was the last it had. Are there any things I need to watch out for when removing the fuel pump assembly from the cover in the rear? I have disconnected the return and feed lines from it, and I have unscrewed the locking ring, anything I need to be weary of when removing it? it seems like it wants to come out but is a little stiff. I do not wanna break anything and put debris in the tank.

If you're sure the pump is dead...won't run at all when jumped directly(?)...look at these videos...not a simple R&R.

UK supplier (no US or Audi sale) of pump alone (entire unit is $700 plus at Audi...only pump goes bad):

yes I watched the videos, where I am hung up now is there is a wire set going from the float to down into the assembly, is that supposed to be removed? Also I have sourced some pumps on ebay. 700 for the assembly is a bit retarded in my opinion for a part that can be had for around $70. Now if I am just being an idiot please let me know! but I have the assembly half way out so far. I just dont wanna break it as I know plastic gets brittle over the years.

got the old pump and assembly out with a little tugging, and I did not break ANYTHING wqoohooo! The pump was the factory original, so no surprise it finally killed at 181k miles. Also got my new TCM ordered and I should have all parts by next week sometime. Hopefully by the time my new license gets here I should have the car up and tooling around! yay! thanks for everyones help and THANK YOU D2 for the videos!!!! They saved me a whole lot of grief, and broken parts.
