Possibly a fuel rail pressure sensor but given it doesn't start when you cannot hear the pump....

I only mentioned it because you asked if a fuel pressure sensor could cause fuel pumps not been activated and the answer was negative.

It seems it's not that cheap, it's even cheaper.

They won't ship outside EU.... but yep, shopping around may lead to a better price, assuming the wait isn't a problem.

And if some sellers deliver to Australia the shipment costs are so astronomical that the end price is the same as on your ebay link. How many fuel pumps would fit in a sea container...

Actually I checked our local postal service and they offer shipment for a package to Australia of max 11x36x60 cm, max 30 kg for 44,90.

Not a lot of 3.0d owners on this forum - and we are lucky to have Clavurion weighing in - he certainly seems to know the 3.0d (M57/M57TU) pretty well.

I guess it'll just be fit the in-line pump when it arrives and see what happens after that. I hate the "parts canon" solution but given the lack of fault indicators, I guess it's your only option right now...

So my new in line pump turned up today. Fitted it and was all excited to finally be back on the road, but unfortunately the problem is still there. Fuel injection warning is still coming up and after multiply turns of the key the fuel pump starts and the Warning disappears and then it starts. Can anyone offer any more suggestions?
