Keep your suction screen receipt to validate the lifetime warranty. Great maintenance for just about all 11xx out there at this point. An ounce of prevention...
They are small enough to carry as a spare if venturing off to the dark continent. The Bosch kit is likely to be discontinued as the cars for which they are designed become obs. Not a bad idea for inmates to pick one up now, especially at this price and while still available.
edit: Ordering tips: Rockauto.com great to deal with. 30 day Rock warranty plus Bosch warranty. If ordering from Advance then you need the a "car" application. Read the terms of Adv "lifetime warranty" carefully. If carrying as a spare where oem is installed then carry Posi-Lock barrels. Soldering on the supplied pigtail socket plug to the pump plate is obviously preferred but Posi-Lock barrels should work as they are nylon (not tried). As already noted, the suction screen for the 69222 has a different attachment than the oem screen. Be sure to order one.
durability: These are lightweight pumps. Have not experienced any failures but carrying a spare is reasonable because of the lower weight and size. Carry in air-tight tube to prevent bearing corrosion. Lower current draw is another advantage.
