Did your pump have a whine to it?

I just spoke with my mechanic but the repair kit appears to be seals only and would address the issue if your pump has a leak. However, if there is a noise coming within it (mine is whining) there is a mechanical issue that he just won't touch.

The rebuild kit addresses everything except internal metal failure. Yes mine had whine. Your mechanic is mistaken.

That looks like a satisfying DIY, like doing the vanos.

I rebuilt mine about a month ago. Easy job.
The most difficult part was getting the "C" clip back on. Stubborn little bugger.
