I think so. I will be replacing my pump on a 2006 Gripen Interceptor (formerly Dame Edna). For a long time, I thought it was a case of uncommon, shocking cold valve noise on a 150K km unit but with a steth appears the pump is extraordinarily noise so I will be replacing it with a low km unit from The Pull which I already have in hand (run on sentence). Two o rings, one black and one green (the latter looks like an AC oring type). I think its the lower green one mainly at fault in yours like I speculate others. After many years of faithful, uncomplaining service in a hot, vibrating and otherwise unforgiving environment, the green one is nicely squished flat. If The Pull car is any indication, the 3 bolts excluding bracket bolt are unusually loose for a Swedish car *****so you may want to try snugging it up first to prevent invasive surgery and cost and beer****. But if you do, maybe look at one of the videos on the net. It's any easy job to take it off, probably same to put it on but note or photograph the orientation of the shaft when you remove the existing assy because it has to go on in the SAME position. Not sure what a trickster that part of the procedure is yet but it slides out easy if that's any indication. The assy will also leak engine oil so having a container handy to put it in is good. I am not sure if my black generic SAE oring kit or SAE green AC oring kit have exact matches. I assume this would happen in your well equipped garage. I would say you need a socket wrench and a open end/box end wrench for the bolt with the tightest access. I was lucky one of the six in my poorly equiped toolbox fit at The Pull.
Do you think a green AC oring can survive in there or do I have to pick up one made from a certain material? Not something economical to buy on the net by itself.
