The other's are different. I got lucky and the dealership replaced my pump at no cost to me. But it was still a pain. The pump had to be ordered from Germany and it took a week to get here. It would of cost me over $800.00. Good luck.
Looks like I was heading down that road. Thanks for info. Question: is the relay in question the "salmon" or orange colored relay towards the front of car in the E-box? And my alert was my purchase was "salmon" and had five prongs... the one I am asking about above and thought to be the culprit had seven (I believe)... son has at school so can't confirm just now.
