    In-tank transfer fuel pump for a 1984 Rabbit

    I have a 1984 1.8L Rabbit convertible, Wolfsburg edition with the small donut spare tire. I am trying to find a replacement in tank transfer pump, however they seem rather rare. Will the in tank transfer pump from the 1985 Cabriolet fit on this all right without any modifications? If not, do you have any idea where I can find a pump for it?

    Re: In-tank transfer fuel pump for a 1984 Rabbit

    The reason that you are having issues is that the 84 Cabriolet was a "tween" year auto.
    Mid 84 was a mid year design change the major difference is that the Fuel tank went from 10 gallons no internal in-tank pump, to a 13 gallon tank with a in-tank pump. The way to tell is the Full Sized Spare tire, or the Space Saver Donut spare tire.

    The 85 in-tank pump is what you want, as a matter of fact the Cabriolets use the same in-tank pump from 1984.5 to 1993.

    This is also why you have to use both the 85 and 84 wiring schematic

    What do Divorces, Great Coffee and Cars all have in common?
    They all Start with good GROUNDS.
    Replace all of them that you can, 99 percent of flakiness will disappear.


    92, 93 Cabriolet.... 89, and 90 are Deceased.

    Thanks very much! That's exactly what I needed.

    One other question; I noticed when I was looking for fuel pumps, that several places also sell a "Fuel Pump Check Valve" for the 84 and 85. Do you know where it's located and how much trouble it is to replace and what it does?

    You have to drop the tank, and besides I have never heard of one going bad.
