Ayc pump repair
 
Hi everyone,

I discovered my AYC pump may have stopped working and was just wondering how straight forward it is to fix it yourself? I've seen there are some repair kits you can buy but not sure about what tools would be needed apart from the standard ones?

Is it a big issue driving with no AYC or is it simply that you don't get the benefits of it?

Also, has anyone sent theirs off to be fixed/refurbed? If so, how much does it cost?

Thanks
Ed

The average cost seems to be circa 500 ... my ayc pump works sometimes and sometimes not , you wont do any damage driving it .
I bought a repair kit so I will get round to it at some point .. there is a vid on youtube showing you how to do it , if you are handy with spanners give it a go ...

Pump service kit here with instructions on YouTurbe.

If you want to send it out then Harry Hockly are supposed to be decent.

Thanks for your responses and the link to the repair kit. I think I will eventually try and have a go at doing it myself...it can join the endless list of evo related jobs

just hope you dont break any valves, and be careful when taking it apart, corrosion locks everything into place and being cast can be broken easily when trying to get the parts apart

only use repair kits of evolution hydraulics

harry hockely use alloy plates not stainless so eventaully will have the same issue again later on

richyx 15-10-2020 14:19

one thing i hate when doing them is when other have had a go and completely destroyed the pump lol

just take your time with it

Do you think they should come apart easily enough if the three long bolts that connect it all together are cut at the head? I'm fairly limited in terms of tools - just have wrenchs, flat head screw driver to pry it apart and a dremel to cut.

It seems from the videos, that they normally fail due to how much corrosion builds up.

Thanks again for all the advice

The pump on the Sportback had to be repaired last year. The casing was corroded solid and eventually had to be sorted by Auto Torque.
Not cheap but repaired.
Good luck
Brian.

the long bolts usually corrode the whole length. The later pumps are tough to open...

sounds like a x pump, therefore good luck lol, as chop head off your then left with flush bolts inside the centre housing that are also corroded inside

Is Harry Hockley operating at the moment?

Have sent an email, used the web form on the website, have sent a Facebook message and called the number but have had no reply :handsup:

Baileyk 13-11-2020 19:12

I sent an email 2 months ago. No reply either.

edbowles86 13-11-2020 21:45

Do you think it's quite a mission to repair it yourself? I was planning on trying soon with this

kikiturbo 13-11-2020 23:12

it depends on the valves being broken or not

Jim Salter 14-11-2020 09:35

Also if someone had repaired the pump before and cut way too much of the motor edge off ☹️
