Hi, need to get a washer pump for my 02.

there seems to be a lot of variations on the same theme, 2002ad sells a cheap one but doesnt seem to fit on the original vdo bottle, you know thoses two holes that slides over some bumps on the bottle...

what is the last good known deal on thoses, that fits at first ?

thanks.

Whether OEM or after market the pump should be shielded from the exhaust manifold heat or it won't last if you do longer trips in the Summer. The shield BMW added to take care of this issue is an ugly Rube contraption but it works. Marshall, at Double 02 Salvage, is where I picked up a new one not too long ago. Used the washer pump to fill the radiator overflow pipe when driving back from Octoberfest in Monterey 2013 after relocating the pump & tank to a cooler in the passenger footwell so it could be refilled on the fly. Really didn't want to change a leaking water pump in a parking lot. It worked and averaged over 60 MPH for the 750 mile drive washing the windshield for a few seconds every 10 miles. The factory part makes it plug and play.

VW Rabbits, early Jettas and Audi Foxes (remember them?) used the same pump with the same bracket as the 2002--those pumps fit the BMW bottle perfectly.  Not easy to find in junkyards any more, but a VW parts specialist should have 'em new, and I'll bet they're cheaper than from (or for) BMW.  Only difference is the logo on the bracket:  VW/Audi vs BMW.

Check with Blunt. You can still get VDO pumps and brackets. The PN is 61661358328. It fit onto my VDO bottle, but I don't know if there is a difference in the bracket for the early (round) vs late (square) bottles.

The bottles remain the same but the bracket for the '75-'76 models -- where the bottle is located on top of the brake booster -- is slightly different: they've got a different angle. Sorry I don't have a photo handy.

I've taken new pumps -- you can buy these VDO replacement pumps for less than $50 -- and put them on old re-plated brackets, even transferring the old non-repairable pump's end plate, with manufacturing date. Suddenly that sounds...dishonest! I'm traveling and can't find a photo but here's an old pump on its replated bracket. If you're not into replating, Eastwood sells three paints that, together, provide the yellow zinc look!

Best,

Steve

nice.

i ordered a VW/vdo Dasher one from e-bay for quite cheap, new with a nice plated braket.

will see how it goes.

thanks.

Pat,

 

Can you post some pics when you get it installed? My car had the washer removed. I need to hook up a whole new system. Knowing that VW has the same system for less definitely helps. Thanks!

anyone ever try one of these universal ones?

The whole kit is less than $20. Definitely not original, but wondering if it would do the job.

I don't see any reason why that kit would not work.  I personally prefer to keep it original, but understand why a brand new 'universal' pump/bottle might be tempting.  You could also try an ad in the parts wanted section. 

 

 

This crusty pump hummed when I got it.  Now it gurrs like a puppy.

(I have posted these photos before... I just think they are pretty)
