Sorry guys I've been taking so long to respond, been crazy busy, but I literally bought this one, lol. I got it for $45. But mine is leaking. I didn't even think about cleaning it! I'll keep my old one as a backup. Thanks!What's wrong with yours? I just took two of mine apart and cleaned them, it's just a diaphragm in a plastic housing that you can very carefully pry apart.
There's one on Ebay right now from a W8 Passat, I'd ask the seller if it's fully tested though.

Now I know!Yeah, I rebuilt mine as well last summer. I did manage to get onbe from ECStuning.com before I knew you could take them apart (I ordered some parts before getting into my job on the car) but they say no longer available now. The VW price is stupid high anyway, $140/ea. They are super easy to take apart and clean.
