hi, just looking around to see what i can find out about this failure, trying to establish if the cause was something specific which i need to address when i fit the new oil pump.
what i do know of the vehicle is its a 2012 so 8 years old and its covered 60K miles with oil changes at every MOT as well as being driven around sensibly by a grown up :)

Sorry to see you had the issue mate. What made you think the oil pump was failing? Cheers

The symptoms were described to me as a sudden rattle and loss of power, I took the engine apart expecting to find a timing chain tensioner failure but it was fine instead I found parts of the oil pump in the basket filter of the sump

Good spot.mate. maybe look into the oil pick, possibly got.blocked causing restriction. How long did it take you to strip it down to where you are?

It came apart over a 6 hour period, there was tea and chat mingled into that, the most stubborn part was removing the coil pack without tearing the rubber isolating material, one ended up in 3 bits

So today I found the time to put this back together, in my case I fitted an oil pump £60 and a new bottom crankshaft pulley £55 the oil and filter was £30, my chain was ok but as it had done 60k miles I changed it £70 and £45 for a water pump, all in all not a difficult job

Hey Pal,

Just checking in to see how the car has been running since all this work? Any issues . Also noticed you said u replaced crankshaft pulley? What made you change that or did you mean crank shaft pulley seal?

Hi, since the repair the car runs great, the pump has an internal hexagon shape which the crank shaft pulley fits into perfectly, but when the pump breaks up it damages areas of the crank shaft pulley making it unusable afterwards the pictures show the damage that occurs, I’m seeing more of these failures popping up around the internet once the engines pass 50k miles, including main dealer serviced examples apparently it’s cause by the timing chain gasket failing mid way up and it means the engine can’t suck the oil up, they suggest silicon gasket on a couple areas during install, thankfully I’d done mine during assembly :)

That's great to hear and some really good info in that head of yours. It does seem very common that I am just preparing my mind for mine as it's at 30k miles lol. When you say it needs some.silicone in certain areas do you know where or have any reading material links hat's states where this new update of adding the silicone should be?

This guy does a guide showing the location for the additional gasket sealant and explains the key elements to install
