Depending upon the age of your pump, I'd strongly consider replacing it. I believe the job is fairly straight forward, just R&R. Check with your mechanic to be sure.

Given the importance of the damn things replacement is on the cards. I'm hoping that I can pay mechanic for advice but do the work myself.
