Air recurculation pump
« on: 09 January 2013, 19:18:04 »

Please could someone help me Ive had a pump go on my 2.5 V6 CDX I think its called a air recurculation pump its situated just under the front nearside bumper wheel arch Its screaming on start up when its cold, runs for a few minutes then cuts out .
I was wondering if someone could help me locate one and let me know how much it is likely to cost me because at the moment the only one I can find is a Vauxhall main dealer part ordered from Germany and it will take a week to get it but the cost, they are talking telephone numbers its robbery.
Or is there another way round this problem .
Awaiting your replys.    cheers Sticky.

Disconnect it. It does nothing useful (for UK emmissions) :y

Depends which bit you disconnect. The Boy means to disconnect the power plug from the compressor under the wheel arch. Or  pull one of the fuses from the triangular fuse box .... .... I'm sure someone will say which it is.  ;) ;)
