AYC/ACD Solenoid

The + solenoid on my pump (VII) snapped.

Recently I got a pump from a V (for the solenoid) as the pump was very, very cheap. I measured the 2 solenoids and they are both the same dimensions.

I have fitted the solenoid from the V into the pump from the VII but it doesn't go in all the way (see pics).

I don't want to force it or tap it with a hammer, so can anyone tell me if his gap is normal or if there is a method to close the gap.

Thanks

Looks like you have a shim on wrong or a piece of broken shim on there.

Yeah, I have a second shim in at the top to close the gap a little. Without the second shim the main one bends slightly but the solenoid doesn't slide in any further

Take the locking tap off and make sure they both seat down all the way, minus the gap for the locking tab. Make sure the o rings aren't unseating when you push it in. They should seat cleanly hence the locking ring to stop them coming out.

If all the cutouts are in the same place I'm not sure why it isn't seating.

When you say the 'locking tap' which part are you referring to?

I have tried to push the solenoid in without the shim etc but it simply won't go any further in! It may be the o-ring stopping it....

On further checking it is the o-ring that's stopping the solenoid from sliding in.

It appears to be a little 'loose'. I presume I can replace the o-ring with a slightly smaller one?

the O ring is 14x1.5 mm.. you can try other dimensions.. or I can send you some..

it would be good if you could compare the snapped part of the solenoid with the VII one you have..
I do not have access to the earlier pumps so can not comment.. but I did replace the E8 and E9 solenoids with ones from E 10... in which case the solenoid had to be turned 180 deg which made it impossible to mount the pump into carrier (due to sticking connector) without some cutting..

it is essential that you test the solenoid on the pump by opening it with pump under pressure... just so that you see it works before mounting it on the car..

Thanks Kiki, I have been round and round in circles with this damn pump

I have compared both solenoids and the appear to be exactly the same (same cutouts etc)

I will post some pics shortly

I have fitted it without the 0-ring and it slides all the way in

In the pics I have slid the solenoid all the way in (I know the it needs to be a bit out for the retaining shim )

[the first 2 pics are to show the broken VII solenoid is the same as the good V solenoid]
