No- turning the ignition to the on position will not run the fuel pump  
on the 200q20v.  This isn't necessary, regardless.

The factory manual cautions to pre-fill the filter to avoid tearing  
it.  Also, new crush washers (available at any Audi/VW dealer,  
probably most auto parts stores as well) are a must.
