Hi, I have a 2000 GLS 2.0 Beetle. I've been doing a lot of preventative maintenance lately, to prolong the life of my Beetle. My mechanic told me that I need to replace the Rubber Mounts on the Vacuum Air Pump. He said "just the rubber mounts".

My problem is I can't find "just the rubber mounts" online. Maybe I'm not searching/looking for it correctly.

Can someone help me? Can you purchase just the rubber mounts?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

they are available from a number of places-I may have gotten them from partsgeek. In essence they are rubber with a bolt coming out each side. try 'rubber mount bolts' and 'vw air pump' and you may have some success

These fr's are. 16.00 each at VW and you need your vin because they come in two styles, I went to the junkyard and went through bugs, Jettas golfs and audi 's and collected just enough to fix my vac pump, now my other bug needs the other style :(. These are hard to find used because they rot . Piss poor part if you ask me.

I used the Dorman branded ones with great success. I can probably get a set inexpensively for you as I work at a shop.

How long you have had them installed in your car? Does the Dorman package say where they were made; and have they held up well to daily use/abuse? The original ones are made out of rubber; that deteriorates pretty quickly; are the doorman ones made out of rubber or something else?

About a year now with no tears or cracks, it does not say where they are made unfortunately . They have been on my Beetle which does have a stage 1 rear motor mount which makes it vibrate (alot). I think they are still rubber.
