In case of severe abuse, such as DIY repair attempts, flood, fire, or a car crash, there may be an additional surcharge.


The fill and drain plug is on top, a 4-mm inside hex bolt in the forward right corner. Drain as much fluid as possible before shipping the pump to us. Removal from the car is easy: disconnect from the wiring harness, disconnect the hydraulic lines (they all pull out after you turn the retaining plates on top - all hoses are numbered and match the engraved numbers on the retaining plates - no need to loosen or tighten the bolts on the plates), unbolt from the car. Optionally remove the mounting frame to simplify shipping. Wrap in a large garbage bag to contain inevitable fluid leakage, buffer the parcel well inside, ideally double box for shipping.

Standard shipping cost $15 within the US (USPS Priority Mail), $85 FedEx Priority Overnight, International FedEx International Priority $85.
