I'll bet the basic pump in there is a standard item that can be purchased separately, not as an assembly. You'd have to take it apart and see if there are any markings on the pump.

Has anyone figured out the part numbers of all three pumps? I've gone through the ETKA a few times and all I can find is the main pump and a "suction jet" pump. Maybe my ETKA is missing some pages or something.

Main Tank Pump: 3B7906087B
Suction Jet Pump: 4B0201865A
Third Pump: ???

Only of incidental interest, but my main fuel pump just died, so p/n 3BF 906 087 B is on order ( Rock Auto, a Spectra SP5050M).

It would have been nice had the pump died instantly .... but it was a slow, lingering death that stranded me twice: the first symptoms were a slight 'miss' - followed 15Km later by quitting completely; however, no codes thrown, either via OBD II or Vag-Com. When towed home, the car restarted the next day, still with a miss ( like a plug/coil pack with an intermittent connection. Regardless, that indicated that pump wiring and fuse were OK - relay??? or pump?? Also, I pulled the vac line to the fuel pump regulator, and it was dry ( ruptured diaphragm kills pressure, and leaks fuel into the vac line)

Replaced relay #409, still a miss ---- pulled pump head to check internal wiring, and all OK. Then ran straight 12V to the pump and ran it for 2 hours on recirculation, followed by reconnecting the harness and ran on idle & short drives for an hour .... ran well, so back on the road - until the pump absolutely quit 2 days later ( another tow home ;) )
Intermittent electrical gremlins are the worst .... and while the first instinct was a pump failure, there are so many other things to check out first - and all of them cost less than a $500 pump!
