I have a 1990 Jetta diesel, turbocharged. The fuel injection

Customer Question

I have a 1990 Jetta diesel, turbocharged. The fuel injection pump has a manual, cable operated cold stating device. There is a fuel leak where this shaft enters the pump. Is it possible to replace the seal at this location without disasembling the whole pump? I am capable of removing and replacing the pump from the vehicle but would not want to tackle disassembling the main part of the pump.

I dont show a procedure myself on how to replace this seal or if it can be replaced individually.You might check with a diesel pump repair facility as they can usually get the seals and components for these pumps and may be able to tell you how to replace it.Most likely the pump will have to be taken apart to be repaired to correct this here as most require to be taken apart for repair.
