I've had it in my car for the last year and a half and am happy with it.  It 
seems to be a good value, too.

As I understand it, there are actually two separate pumps in the one housing.

It should be an easy job.  Make sure that you have new washers for the 
fittings, as it is impossible in my experience to stop the leaks you will get 
if you re-use the old ones.
