2008 MINI Cooper S - Vacuum Pump Replacement

Video of my DIY project today. Replaced the vacuum pump in the MINI. As most know, I try to pinch the pennies, so I replaced the stock pump with one manufactured by Pierburg that I purchased from ECS Tuning. I'm not sure they aren't the supplier of the OEM part. The pumps look identical externally.

Overall it was an easy repair. Biggest problem is trying to work around the tight confines of the engine bay.


  1. Thanks for the info! Nowadays more and more people buy used cars. It can be way cheaper, but it doesn’t have any impact on car’s characteristics. Every buyer always have a lot of questions which is pretty normal. I’d like to recommend you
    website. If you’re going to buy an old car these guys will help you with that. You have to enter the VIN number of the car and you’ll get the full and detailed information about it. You’ll know its mileage, operational history, whether it’s in a databases of stolen cars etc.
