Smg Pump Replacement Diy Feeler

Did my own R&R SMG Pump. just trying to see if there is any interest in a DIY. I'd hate to waste the my time on it, if no one cares.

Haven't read about too many of them failing but I am sure a DIY is more than welcomed.

Did you need to bleed it? I recall it running at a fairly high PSI.

more then you can shake a stick at, unfortunately. those pumps are only good for about 60-80K. i guess alot would depend on the type of driving you do. lot's of highway miles, longer pump life. shorter stop and go commutes, wouldn't be surprised if the pump goes bye bye at 50K. All my local dealers stock these pumps (and they are 2K a piece)
And, yes i did need to bleed it. i used autoenginuity.

That is great help. Even though I don't even own an M3, I still read it just to see how it's done. People with SMG should definitely bookmark it. Thanks for your time!
