Removing the Vacuum Pump on Passenger Side Upper Timing Gasket.

The Vacuum Pumps purpose is create vacuum as the valvetronic system reduces the manifold vacuum. Plays into Breakbooster. Usually found on Diesels.... So the local repair guy might be confused.

Press brakes to remove pressure on breakbooster
Remove Vacuum Hoses
Release inverted Torx screws

installing per TIS
Replace Seals
Align drive to fit into engine
Veritical alignment is best
If you can't get it to go in. Crank Engine at Bolt to line up vertically.
Attach Vacuum hoses to ensure no damage to engine gaskets occurs.
