OK thank you lol not what I wanted to hear, I knew they filled with water but I didn't how much corrosion to expect.
Is it possible to clean it up?
Only I just looked on eBay only to find not one pump for sale..

Thank you

You might be best to search for "Galaxy 2.3 breaking" and then ask the sellers a question to see if they have one - I'd hazard a guess that a fair few are scrapped without them having knowledge its even there!

If you take it apart and clean it all up you might find some life in it but from the state I suspect the pump itself will be too badly corroded internally. Worth a try though :)
