e36 Secondary Air Pump for 97 328i

Whats goin on guys...

I have to replace a secondary air pump for my 328i...The dealership told me around 300$ plus labor...im definetly gonna do it myself...i found a few for around 250$ online but if anyone has done this before, how involved is it, and if anyone knows of any cheaper sites, it would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks again,
Nick

I've seen only one secondary air pumps fail... what kind of conditions did it fail in?... what is wrong with the car?

I had mine replaced along with other tune up stuff. Mine was $250 plus labor. You dont even need the stupid thing, but I dont like when my CE light is on...

the car runs fine its weird...it came on early this summer, oddly because from what i understand if it acts up it will do so under under cold conditions...the filter inside has rotted away so i definetly need to do it before winter but again its one of those bs upkeep and maintainence things around 85K
