T4 2.4d Brake vacuum pump replacement

Postby NickV » Wed Jul 24, 2013 9:52 pm

Has anyone replaced a brake vacuum pump on a t4 [mine is 2.4d]?

Have traced a small oil leak to top of mine,so want to remove and clean up or replace. [it has had the tapping noise they get since I've had it....]

Any tips if you have!?

Cheers, Nick

Never replaced one, but put up with the tapping noise for eight years when I had mine. But if the oil leaks bothering you then change it. Go on the T4 forum lots of posts on there about changing it.

Thanks Mikey
Yep, been looking and people on the T4 forum reckon is not a bad job.
Would have left mine as I am happy with it tapping away...

But now it is leaking oil not so happy....am going on a road trip in it to Spain/Portugal with heavy load so will err on the side of caution [and expense :shock: ]
Don't want it to fail over there as will be more hassle!
Cheers

ten minute to whip it off, strip the top off and examine for wear. POP.
