Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
Secondary Air Pump:
VW Diag bad. Could an average guy, "not a auto tech" replace this? Have the tools. Found new OEM pump at 1/4 VW cost. Feelings not easily hurt LOL.
Thanks for any advice...
Yes. There are only 3 nuts holding the air pump in place. They are 10mm in size. There are also two hoses, one in and one out. You just have to squeeze the end of the hose where there are ridges in the plastic to release them. The hardest part is getting the pump out of the tight space where it is located. You may have to twist and turn it a few different ways until you find a path for the pump to exit the vehicle. Where did you find the pump? I have to do the same repair to my 2000 model. Unfortunately, the only discounted parts I can find are used.
