Re: Fools rush in .....
Speaking of ZF pumps...
I recently got mine in from MAAS.
As I was reading the Audi TB on replacing the pump, I noticed
a very strong suggestion to replace the banjo bolts (especially
the ones with a screen). As I was making arrangements with my
mechanic to install the new pump, I mentioned the TB and asked
if he had replaced the bolts when he installed the pump (now bad)
approx. 1 year ago - his reply was: "? No..."
Since I will be there when he will be working on it, I will make sure
he does it right, per Audi Tech Bulletin.
Incidentally, the mechanic is Mark Biela (Sudbury, MA). I am coming
back to him because he is going to install the pump free of charge,
since the one he installed when I bought the car 1 year ago (paid for
by the dealer) started leaking about 6 months after. It's a long
story, but in summary the dealer had him install the pump which was
either a) used, or b) (as he claims) not a ZF pump and the rebuilder
is out of business, thus no warranty.
