Hi Guys

Just a quick one, (I hope).

I've bought a used vacuum pump to replace mine as I'm having some locking issues with the boot.

Q. Does the replacement unit need to be programmed in or can I simply swap over the air and two electrical connectors?

Cheers

No programming as far as I know, others may know more.
Is your car alarm in good working order, if it were faulty it might be related to the boot open problem?

Is the lock keyhole slot Vertical or Horizontal?

Hi Dec
Car alarm is functional. The boot still not locking since we last 'spoke' but have taken the car to one mechanic who reckoned its probably the vacuum pump as all other parts of the central locking system are working fine.
I've managed to get a used puimp for £60 so if it doesn't need programming I can fit it myself and see if it works and fixes the boot locking issue.

Cheers
 
I’m just being cautious, I have heard off people fitting ebay replacements alright which did solve the faults that the had.
