cheers,

peeled the engine bay seal off, tipped the plastics up and mine looks exactly as yours.

ordered one, looks tight to get into, did you remove the wiper arms and take the trim off, or just lift it and squeeze in?

should i replace the solenoid valve too while i'm at it do you think?

Hi.

I removed wipers and lifted trim and squeezed in. there is metal bracket which holds pump with 3 screws and that bracket is bolted with 2 bolts to firewall. pump has 3 pin connector, and you can actually check that pump ( if you buy used one) connecting 12V on outside pins (remember about polarity)

I didn't change valve and I couldn't find any issue with it

I wonder if Audi have improved the part as the early ones definitely seem to be problematic.

revision A, is still the same. I had one from 2012 which was faulty but I bought one from 2010 and it is working. although I spoke with my friend who works for audi and said it is common issue with these pumps not just in A8 but in whole range.

there is revision B but it will not fit A8 as different bracket I believe.
