Hello, How Much Water? Reasonable amounts can be dealt with by adding a fuel additive designed for that problem. Also if the total level of the tank is low ...add more gas. siphon it out or disconnect fuel line from engine and pump it out. If you must remove the tank you should check a shop manual and ask a friend for help. The tank can be heavy-awkward- difficult for one person.

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 2004 VW Passat GLS 1.8T and the gas gauge is not working. How would I fix this?

More than likely the fuel sending unit was not placed down into the tank properly or possibly defective. This could have happened during the installation and I know this for certain to be tricky on this car . I would suggest removing the pump assembly and making sure the arm attached is correctly moving inside the tank . Goodluck

1993 vw passat intermittant no start

If you take loose the air box lid you may find that the injection control plate that has to move to give it fuel may have moved just enough to make it stick and can't move so it can get fuel. This also happened to me with my 93 Passat.

1993 VW Cabriolet Fuel pump or Injector problem?

Hi. This is more of a fuel filter issue than a pump issue although, a bad fuel filter will eventually destroy a fuel pump. When the filter is restricted or clogged, this will tend to work the pump harder than normal. this will over heat the pump, therefore, shortening its life span. I recommend replacing the fuel pump and filter and, adding a fuel additive like techtron fuel injector cleaner/water remover as well.

Please rate and have a great day:)

2001 VW Passat leakin water

I would highly suggest a pressure test to really pin point this leak. I can tell from diagram that the coolant expansion tank line goes right thru that area. I would also caution you to the obvious with this vehicle- everything is a tight fit and coolant leaking from the t-stat housing and or water pump could look similiar. I strongly suggest a pressure test to keep from throwing good money away.
