ABS Pump failure - ball park costs?

Hi Guys and Gals,

Sods law occured this morning..

Car has been faultess as per normal.. Today is MOT day and as I pull off up the road the ABS light comes on (with some other associated ones).. I get to the MOT Garage which happens to be my Local Indie.. They say the ABS pump has gone... Ball park quote 1000...

Any thoughts?

Being a positive man.. the car sailed through the rest of the MOT...

Cheers

Tarbs

Garage List
On a 6 cylinder engine the full part (mechanical pump and electronic module) costs around 1,800. The mechanical unit (repair kit) is around 900.

Send the whole unit to ECU Testing and the cost will be approx 250 including testing, repair and return postage. Do not send to BBA Reman.

On a 4 pot the repair kit mentioned above is about 200.

ABS pump refurb

Yeah, go to www.ECUtesting.com and fill out the online form with the part number of the unit and they'll let you know if they can repair/refurb it. If they can, remove and send it to them and once they get it they'll turn it around in 3 days with text updates to let you know what's going on (255). I got mine back last Thurs and mechanic fitted Fri morn and so far so good. Forget BMW. Get yourself a good indie and it'll be all sorted for a fraction of the price. Thoroughly reccomended.

Guys - thank you ever so much for this.

It has turned out to be an interesting saga.

Because I am time bound this is going to be a bit squeaky.. I am certainly not paying the ridculous price that BMW want.. My Indie, who I really do see in a different light after my last two visits, doesnt want to get involved in the whole ECUTesting.com thing..

So i took the car back (MOT doesn't run out till the 28th Feb) and a mate is going to look after the car and get it to his Indie who said he will sort it all in for about 400.

Will keep you posted.

Another ABS issue yep they seem to be going down good and proper, refurb unit wise is the most cost effective way we've got 2 in progress now down side is the cars off the road for a week or so.

all 4 cylinders are cheap by comparison, the repair kits around 142.80+VAT plus fining and brake fluid and fault clearing, therefore making it look damn cheap compared with a 6 cylinder model
