    Drastic matey. would it not be cheaper to try and repair it rather than dismantle it, time, effort and your still gonna have to buy another car which will be more than 1300 quid....

    I would certainly shop round for a couple more prices before I condemned it to the scrap yard.

    Don't always have to get new

    I think stripping it is being quite defeatist, have a look around and you'll get a solution that won't cost £1300 plus fitting.

    I think stripping it is a bit drastic.

    Second hand pumps are no use for the Vec C, and that is a pump for a vec b. What is wrong with the pump is it mechanical or electrical. Couldn't you get someone to repair?

    They are coded to the car and can't be re-coded, tech 2 or otherwise

    It's alway a worry for us dti owners that the pump may fail
