  3. Hi Boys, Just joined the forum, 90 SE living in France... hello to everyone... I am trying to solve a problem of low engine oil pressure at idle (mostly). At the moment I am looking at rebuilding the oil pump. I ordered a new rotor and annulus. I have the pump housing on the bench... looking stupid because I just can't manage to remove the rotor/pump from the auxiliary shaft ! There is that circlip at the end of the shaft... so I removed it, then pulled by hand on it, thinking/hoping it would/should come off fairly easily... but it doesn't ! Looking at the parts list, there doesn't seem to be much mystery to it, just the circlip. I tried hitting the shaft with a rubber mallet, but it wouldn't move at all. So, I welcome any help/suggestion/feedback from people who have actually managed to do it ! Thanks a bunch in advance, Regards, -- Philippe
