Tried to do mine on Saturday, love the optimistic 45 minute time for doing it...

I realised I had the dreaded banjo bolt, after having to borrow a splined tool set off a mate, I then found out that the head was rounded, so had to put it back together.

New bolt and new splined bits ordered, second time lucky this weekend!

2nd attempt today, only took an hour which included getting all the tools out and cleaning up!

New banjo bolt in, new follower and O ring.

It's been around 10k since the last owner did it, car is stage 2, I'd say normal wear looking at the follower.

Happy it's done!

@NickGTi That is some serious wear considering it’s only done 10k, what was the cam lobe like?

Fairly typical of tuned TFSIs!  Once the DLC coating rubs off, it's not long left for this world!

It's closer to 15k after checking, the cam looked fine upon inspection.

The car is stage 2 spec so to be expected I guess.

Glad it's all done though!

Many thanks OP  for this guide. :happy2: :happy2:

Tackled this today on my 2005 AXX with 74k on the clock.

Had a banjo bolt pump but used a 10mm ratchet spanner and taped up the m8 12 sided spline tool from my Hilka set (same as the machine mart set mentioned in an earlier reply) to the ratchet and worked a treat getting the bolt off and back on.

Be aware that the banjo fitting needs to be slightly lifted away from under the pump to free it as there is a lip on the pump allowing the banjo fitting to seat back onto the pump.

Case hardening was starting to wear through on the tappet so a wise move it was replaced now.

Also fitted a new o ring as the old one was brittle and had to be lifted off the pump with a flat head screwdriver.

Took 30 minutes start to finish.

Regards

Antony

Managed to check my cam follower yesterday afternoon, it’s done roughly 15,000 miles & looked in very good condition on stage 1 tune, also cam lobe looked A1.

I did find the HPFP piston & spring quite stiff on inspection (maybe normal) but after a good few compressions of the same with palm of my hand and making sure I pushed it dead straight and supported the HPFP with my other hand it did seem to free off a little, car seems to to be a little more smoother & positive after this!! Not faster
Anyone else had this, or is it all in my head  :thinking: Seem to enjoy driving it more today & even took it for a spin down back roads

Also made sure I had the engine TDC just in case not sure if this matters or not, hardest bit of all the job for me was trying to get the cam belt cover back on jeeeez what a pain in the arse.

Took me longer to do that bit then the HPFP cam check

To be honest I did not bother getting the engine to TDC.

Just ensured that upon reassembly all three fuel pump bolts were tightened down equality in turn so that there was no potential to distort or knacker the fuel pump piston & spring.

Great guide. very much appreciated. Just bought a mk5 on 83k and having done my research before buying the car on this forum i knew the follower would be the first thing i checked.Its a 2 owner car with full history and no evidence of the follower ever been replaced. The guy i bought it of had the car 10 years and he certainly hadnt had it changed.
So after buying a kit of awesome gti for £64 inc delivery(bolts /seal/cam follower) and doing my research on here i went for it.
Was very pleased to find a cam follower all in one piece.whilst the coating had worn off the follower the cam and fuel pump looked good condition.New follower fitted and all went back together well.
So for people as a reference the car was on 83k on the origional follower. regular oil changes and has had a remap since about 35k
