vacuum pump for door locks...

Hey everyone! yea, the vacuum pump that locks all the doors in my car is shot. A used replacement from potomac is going to cost me $60! A new one is selling for around $200!!!!! With that said, im thinking about hacking up a replacement myself. 12v pumps can be had for $10 at your local WalMart, but I need some help. I took apart the old pump, and its basically a motor and a circuit board. The board seems fine, and is pumping current to the motor, but the motor has that just burnt smell, and refuses to move. I can't take the motor housing apart, as it is a solid unit, soo... I figure id adapt a small tire pump to do the trick. Does anyone know anything about the door lock vacuum pump under the rear bench? Some PSI numbers would just be great. Even if someone could give me a safety range for the pump, so that I don't bust all the locks with too much pressure. Basically, plese tell me anything and everything you know about the vacuum pump for the locks!!! Thanks!!!!

Vacuum Pump ?

There's a couple of diffferent ones on E-Bay right now I believe starting around $20. Potomac is good but not cheap. You should be able to find one in any junkyard they are either in the trunk encased in a foam rubber block in the corner of the spare tire well or under the rear seat on the passenger side. What's the part number, or what does the electrical connector look like I'll probably hit the boneyard this week and I'll see what I can find. Let me know what the most you're willing to pay so if I see one I'll get it for you for just the cost. Can't be more than $5 shipping it? I'm near Boston.

P. S. This unit creates suction not pressure so I don't know if the tire pump modification will work out!
