    Hi chaps,

    Well after so many taps of my after run pump which worked got it working for a week it's finally given up the ghost. Looking to replace it soon as it's fairly important isn't it. But at £100+ not cheap! :(

    Anyone have a guide anywhere or know how big a job it is? Looks kinda arkward and tight for space.

    Cheers

    PS Yes I've searched the forums before I posted but no joy!

    It's just a Bosch pump that is used on all sorts of cars, shows how much of a mark up Audi put on parts.

    Just fitted one of those ebay jobbies and it runs like a water pumping clock. Way quieter than my old one although thats prop due to it being on its way out. Its a piece of wee to change also, less than 10 min and job done.
