Sounds like you might have one of the screws letting loose, that's where
they leak from....if that's the case, buy a new pump from Blau....they
usually have the one for the 200q in stock and it comes with a 3? year
warranty from the OEM that rebuilds them....who makes those things

To replace it, it's not that hard. Need three long 3/8" extensions for the
13mm socket to get the nuts that hold the hoses on the back of the pump (go
in from under the intake manifold), unbolt the whole thing after removing
the belt, get something to hold the hoses up in the air....get new banjo
bolts and gaskets (which come with them). Once you do it once, you'll be
able to do it in about 1 to 1.5 hours! It's not that hard....

Paul (tried to rebuild them before - they don't last long!)
