VW has 2 kits for that pump, the diaphram and seals and a 2nd kit w/ the check valves. It is usually one or the other you need,
pop the cover off and have a look and see what the problem is and then get the right parts. Also, consider venting the pump up
to the valve cover by adding a tee fitting at the pump and the VC breather and rubbing some tubing between the two. You can see
the connecting hose just left of center on the picture below:
