T4 Post Icon Brake vacuum pump

I need to replace the vacuum pump on my van. Have read lots of posts about this and got some great info about how to go about it / merits of trying servicing pump first / replacing pushrod only etc.

Can anyone confirm whether or not there is an 'inbetween' brand of affordable / reliable replacement pump and best place to get one? IE somewhere inbetween the VW genuine (very pricey) and the flEbay Polish ones (cheap but don't last very long?)

Hey Mikeys, I have just replaced mine today with one I got off of carparts4less. It was a Dansk make. I read up and it seemed to be a reasonable substitute. Was also fairly cheap as i had a voucher for them. I guess I will know in the next few months if its pants. Its the same one that euro car parts sells for 50 more.

Hope that helps.
