Fuel leak

I have replaced the main seals, one round and the two rectangular from my fuel tank and I think I did all the rest as it was in the video. I primed the pump and I turned the motor by hand to test that everything is o.k. Then I heard a squeaky sound from the pump. In the video they were saying to pay attention about a little shim not to fall but I didn't hear anything falling. Then I went to start the engine but it sounds like the starter is stuck. Maybe it doesn't turn that easy. Then I put my charger to start mode but still the same. I didn't hear anything when I was installing the large seal, like something falling or any other sound. Any idea how can I test this problem? And if I need to start all over removing the pump completely is any links to show me how.
Thank you very much.

If it's not assembled correctly, it can cause damage. You could try removing the QA and looking down into the pump body. http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/a4/IP-removal-TDI-engine.htm Here is how to remove the pump.
