200tdi brake vacuum pump

Recommended Posts

Hi all , one of the little jobs that I’ve decided to do over Christmas is overhaul the vacuum pump , it doesn’t look a hard job to do have got my refurb kit but has anyone out there done one on a  200tdi , are there any does and don’ts any pointers to make it easier ? Have searched for guides on line but only one I could find is for a 300tdi , so any help would be appreciated.

cheers Ian

Ian, I just changed the vanes on the VP. Make sure you clean the unit properly! Very easy and simple to do

Cheers both .Do you need to remove it or can you do it while still fitted to the engine ? And is it oil lubricated or should you put a bit of grease in there ? As I’m presuming that there’s a bearing in there

Oil lubrication but I would squirt a little in before first run. Should be ok in situ depending on how you plan to clean it but it's only three cap heads and it lifts out. If you do end up replacing it I hope you have better luck than me mine was worn in the slots so bought new. Two later I fitted a second hand one as the new ones didn't draw a vacuum.

Cheers Mike will remove it then I can give the inside a good clean if needed . Don’t  think mines knackered , just think it might need a bit of tlc it’s 20 odd years old and when I rebuilt her ( would of refurbed the pump then if I’d known you could get a refurb kit) I fitted a red booster clutch servo for when the wife drives it and I think it might be struggling sometimes to keep up with the demand from that and the brakes, so thought I’d refu4b it and see if there’s any difference .
