I wish I could tell you to get a German made one.
Then I could also.  I too have a Czech made pump that
is noisy/sometimes questionable.  Made in the same
time frame as yours.  When they opened the new
factory.  I suspect there "may" have been some minor
QC problems when they first released production.  I'll
probably never hear a definitive answer.  The answer
to the second question is: Installation is the reverse
of removal.  LOL.  I always wanted to say that.  Very
often it does make alot of sense though.  Just read
the steps in reverse from last to first and do the
oposite of what it states for removal.
