Power steering pump question. Serial numbers to models.
Posted 15 July 2012 - 19:27
So my question is can I fit a pump from the Polo or Roomster or any other Fabia II? Do the part numbers need to be exactly the same letter for letter as there seem to be a fair few, or is it enough that the pump is the same shape wise and plug wise?

I have fitted used steering pumps to older cars and will where price or needs must, but i would not be fitting one to a nearly new car,
especially since your own 2 or 3 year old one has already failed on you.

Before they are quoting a price, they surely know which pump it is!
Can you not go to the Skoda Parts desk with your VIN number or take the cars registration papers,
get them to show you the part & the part number or parts numbers and the price for each.
Go to a good 'Motor Factors' and check the price of the parts,
(if there is for the sake of the exercise there is a choice of 2 or 3 power steering pumps it may be for your application or vehicle, get the new price for each and compare)
Find out if there is a Pattern or Refurbished /exchange part that suits your vehicle, but much cheaper.
I really can not see there being much of a variation on the pump used or the price of them from whoever supplies to VAG.
all the best with it.

there are plenty of pumps on ebay and they do say that they will fit from roomsters polos from 2007 onwards (i have a 2010 tsi 105), but these are just ebay descriptions so one cant be sure.
