They often jam up from the commutator falling apart. Who knows when they die?

Stock (for the V8, maybe all) is a VDO, 4D0906091C which is around $150USD. There was a UK seller we used to get these from but now they are available in the US and other locations.

Most of us have just replaced the pump, careful to align and seat everything and not to damage the blind nut in the tank the long bolt threads into. It was not difficult for me when I did it on my A8, just had to be careful.

Where are you located? Some of us are trying out a pump from Poland that is under $50 USD, I bought one and it appears to be the right pump but I have not installed it yet. The seller has a good rep and has been around for a long time.


Careful of the ones from China, HK, etc. it looks like many of them lack the extra bottom outlet that drives the scavenge pumps.
