Vacuum Pump
I have a 1999 Cutter. The Vacuum pump that operates the A/C heater doors has stopped working. A replacement for the original is $255.00 Questions: #1 Is there a cheeper replacement? #2 Can it be re-built and and if yes, who re-builds it?

Small diesel vehicles often use a vacuum pump, try a junk yard. A lot of Thomas compressors are also vacuum pumps, check ebay.

John's right about searching junk yards. Many GM cars of the late 80's through the mid 90's,used a vacuum pump for accessories such as yours (high emmision standards,equated low vacuum at idle on these cars). Take a look at any models similar to Pontiac or Chevy J cars, Chevy Celebrity,Pontiac 6000 etc, there vacuum pumps are generally located in the front left fender well,mounted on the underside.Happy hunting

I've also been told that the Buick Grand National used a vacuum pump but they are a rare car indeed. I had the Delco part # for this pump and can't find it. Sorry.
