How hard is this to change out myself? Noticed it leaking and ordered a new pump but can't find any videos online on how to do this.

Thanks

Make sure the bolts are tight first, mine was leaking and I tightened up the bolts, no more leaking. If you replace it, you have to have a dealer do an oil prime sequence.

Yes sir, was aware of the oil prime sequence.

Just wanted to save a few dollars on the install is all.

Chances are you will be charged about the same either way.

No sir, unless they can install the oil pump and prime it in 30:minutes. Main factor is they canโ€™t get me in to change the pump for a few weeks but they can squeeze the prime in with little to no notice.
