ABS pump leaking oil Sign In

Hi I have problem with my passat 1.9 TDI 2000. My abs pump is leaking break oil at one of two black caps (after removing black caps it I think it is called high pressure valve or I might be mistaken). You can see those two black caps on this picture (above abs pump motor): .

After reamoving caps and pressing break pedal it would squirt out oil like on this video:

New pump is worth almost as car and finding correct used pump is nightmare because there are so many different models on this passat and it has to match, as they sad to me in VW service, to model I have now or else it can't be programmed. Considering all of this facts I would like to know is that valve something that can be fixed/changed or it means I have to change whole pump and is "high pressure valve" correct name for it.

Thank you.

No, you're pretty much screwed.

This is why I hate Farfugnugen.

Ditto > It's illegal where I am to fix or even find used brake parts of this type so new that matches would be my only choice.

I do know of place you can send the unit to out of area here in the US that claim they can fix this stuff and do - witnessed it, didn't do it.

Essentially you are screwed. Pay the price or find in your area someone who can legally for you and area to fix or alter set up not recommended to alter the original design,
