me wake up? that'd be a first. you can get a 200tdi pump apart if your careful.

its easy enough to work out as you go along, the basic order of things (its been a few years since i did it) is

remove the pump - obvious eh?

remove the pressure relief valve

the body of the pump looks like a can, it will press off backwards with a screwdriver worked around the top

then there is 4 bolts holding the back on the pump itself.

then the rotor & vanes lift/fall out, there is a key holding the rotor to the shaft (if the bearing retaining clip in the front of the pump goes it will eat this key killing the pump)

then the plate the pulley bolts to will slide/drift (needs pressure/gentle hammer) off the shaft followed by the plastic dust cover

then you see the spring clip retaining the bearing, remove that & the shaft slides out forward.

i replaced the bearing in mine when it died for about £6 from BTR bearings. any bearing specialist should manage to match it i believe. there is also an oil seal on the shaft behind the rotor.

heres a few pics i took as went along

inside the 'can' you can see where the magnet goes bottom left of the body in that slot

the rotor & vanes

thanks for help... have just phoned local store who will supply pump for 76+v sounds reasonable to me as will

be returnable in first yr if it doesnt hold up.....

but would realy like to establish if it realy is the pump....

Are there any set tests I can do to eliminate al else..?

open bleed nipple on power steering box

start engine

the turn the steering wheel

the more you turn it the higher the fountain of ATF will be till it hits the bonnet(best done at a petrol station in front of thier pressure washer)

that way you can clean the car and pop into the garage for some more ATF :)

if there is no fountain the pump is Dead.

ps don't stand near the fountain as hell does it go everywhere.(experience talking)
