Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
CEL on, VW diagnosed secondary air pump! Very expensive. Any chance a guy with reasonable ability can replace this? Have located an OEM new pump at 1/4 the price of VW. Feelings not easily hurt... LOL Not a technician
Thanks for any advice in advance...
Had one changed on my daughters 1998 VW Beetle, cost nearly $650 for part plus installation. Failure came while her car was in Boston so I was unable to complete the task. The part is readily accessible in the front of the engine compartment, and not all that difficult to replace. If you can change brakes, alternators, serpentine belts, etc. you should be able to change the secondary air pump. Check with your local parts supplier like AutoZone or Murrays, they may have tips & tricks to make the job a bit easier.
Good luck, and have confidence.

Just remove the 3 bolts using a 6mm hex bit and disconnect the wire harness by pressing the tab on the connector. You'll also need a 10mm box wrench to counter the bolt removal.
