Part # 533201511A Fuel Filter with Expansion Tank. This part is no longer available. Anyone have a way to solve a problem with a leaking expansion tank? No aftermarket part available either. I've called all over and found non.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks but they don't have any and they said the part is discontinued.

I continue to search.

So I was just curious as to what the heck that part was and did a google search with the part number and found this
http://busdepot.com/details.jsp?partnumber=533201511A

They list it as available for $24.73

Thanks but bus depot is out of stock. We are going to have to have one fabricated.

I work part time at a place called vermeers here in ohio. We have a pretty deep warehouse filled with some pretty old random VW parts. If you would like I can check on monday to see if we can find it. I'm sure that it would not be the most fun to fabricate one. If we have it I can shoot you a P.M. and we can just ship it to you.

That would be great! Let me know what you find.

Hey I didn't forget about you, but I did end up spending my day putting out some fires so I never got around to looking for that part. I will give it a go early tomorrow and post up the results.
Sorry for the delay.

Mondays...aren't they great! :lol:

Shadd Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:18 am

So we have none in the warehouse. The only part that I found that has a similar description was $140. I am pretty sure that is not it but it has no pic. Sorry

Thanks for looking.

galefrank Thu Apr 05, 2012 9:11 am

Finally found one. :lol:

Took delivery last night. Thanks everyone for looking for this part.

We found it at Affordable German in Phoenix. We're still going to check on having the part fabricated.
