SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Hello! There are a couple of items to check before you invest in a new pump; Check the fuel pump fuse...Also. there is a device (look for location in owners manual) called a inertia fuel pump switch. It activates if you "bump" or someone "bumps you.It is designed to kill the fuel pump in the event of a collision. It, I believe, is located inside the car on the drivers side. It has a red button on top that needs to be reset. If not inside look under the hood; it is easy to locate, just look for a bright red button. The 2000 Volkswagen line has had problems with this switch opening up on it's own. If this switch, when reset, solves the problem buy a new switch.It cost around $75 and may be called "fuel pump cut-off switch". If none of these items clear your fault then change the fuel pump; And a fuel filter.
When you rate this solution please leave a short note to let me know how you did.

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.
