[A4] A quiet list...to central locks

Glad to disturb the silence then.
I think this is about the info I got from Audiworld...along with some
smart-ass comment about "it's a ten year old car, what do you expect." I
didn't find that answer to be very constructive. Signal to noise indeed.
They do have a good search function over there though.
I did find some of those central locking control modules available on
Car-Parts.com. My hesitation with a used part is what's to prevent the same
failure cropping up quickly? Digging through Audiworld, found somebody has
also been able to replace just the pump with one they pulled from a similar
vintage Passat. Just replacing the pump with a better version would seem to
be a more permanent solution...and also allow me to avoid the reprogramming
shenanigans. That rebuild article I believe is the eighth link down this
Anybody with experience doing this rebuild?
...and now that I've woken the slumbering giant, expect more questions over
the next couple of days.
