How VW Parts Fail ~ In Tank Fuel Pumps

Failing VW fuel pump

We are back talking about how Volkswagen parts fail. This is video 29 of examining how Volkswagen parts fail. I take the really commonly failing parts, break them open and show you what happens. I also want to mention that you should not be scared off of owning or buying a VW. Anyone could do these types of videos on any make. I do how VW parts fail because I work at a VW dealer 🙂
