    '03 Passat GLX 4Motion 2.8l that won't start

    Well guys I'm at my wits end with this no fuel problem. I checked fuse 28 good, Read some where here if you get a blink on your test light at 28 when cranking that means everything upstream good. I had no sign of it trying to run at the pump so I replaced it still no fuel. I 'm trying to get at the relay panel can't figure out what's holding the lower panel under steering column. I got the 2 star bolts on the door side but can't fine anything on the other side I laid under the column I saw a metal strap looking thing on the other side at the bottom but that's it. Afraid to pry on any thing don't want the break the plastic. Should I have 12 volts at the pump on pin 1&4 key on ? Also there is 2 2 pin connectors on the bottom of the pump top plate . Does it make a difference which one goes on witch one. I no fuel gauge working so I'm assuming i have them reversed. HELP PLEASE

    there are two more, one on each side of the steering column, you kinda have to look up at a 45 degree angle from the bottom of your front seat.

    I will run and a grab a photo.
