Replacing the bushing requires almost a total disasembly. If
you still have the original on your '86, the rubber seals
( O-rings) will be going bad SOON. replace them too.

******* Caution: rebuilding these ZF pumps is not the run of
the mill repair. Many folks have had unsucessful rebuilds.

Recommend you get the original AUDI replacement kit, about
$25 to 30 from Carlsen.
