Although pictures here are of the early mk5 VW no difference in those pictures vs. the mk5, mk6, or Audi A3 This page also has notes on part numbers, for evidence of high pressure pump failures, and the difference in the priming procedure.

The 2 fuel filters for VW TDI common engine and the Audi A3 filter

TDI use 2 different fuel filters. Jetta TDI built up to about used the 2 hole wide filters (1k0127434 or 1k0127434a). VW Jetta TDI built after and 2010 Golf TDI should use the 1 narrow mouth filter The difference in the part number is no suffix a, or suffix b.

The difference in the is 1 hole narrow mouth B) or 2 hole wide mouth (no filter and A). They use different and the 2 hole wide mouth is taller. I believe the difference in was due to rolling changes and parts during production. VW switched one style, to another, then to the first, and now I think they are to get rid of the leftovers.
