Hi Alan, yes that would be right, otherwise the immobilizer will not let the engine run as it's on the back of the pump I think. Also as you have got the lump out it would be a good idea to do the Cam belt, Water pump and roller / tensioner. You don't want to be in the same position in a few weeks time when the belts gone again. Unless you know they were done recently. Just my thoughts. Dave.
Smile it's already happened!
Thanks Dave, appreciated. Got new belt, idler, pump etc, not running that risk again. Thanks will just swap my original onto second hand engine. Cheers
Sorry if a stupid question but what happens when the pump break and need to replace it?
Not a stupid question !!! If you change the pump either type it has to be coded to the immobiliser, usually by the dealer or a good mechanic with the gear

you slap a new pump on then have to pay a garage with the correct computer gizmo to connect up and tell the car its got a new pump..... and pray
or scrap the car and buy another one.
