I have the impression that main dealer mechanics are not what they used to be. These days everything has to be completely replaced. Far from it that a part can be repaired, perish the thought!

edit: the main dealer refuses to use any aftermarket items
if the audi agent is correct about not possible to change the pump alone then there are a good number of A8's which run without one . mine included
if only !

late addition ; asked the previous owner of my A8 [ my nephew ] who fitted the new pump ....an auto electrician ! isn't there one on Karlstadt seeing the car is there ?

Thank you Ainars. That's very good of you.
I wouldn't want to do anything in this weather either.
I shall wait for warmer times then pm you a message to see if you are available, then we can take it from there.
I can't remember (MJ please remind me if you read this as I seem to remember you saying something along these lines) whether there is a gasket set that is used on the pump when reseating it.
If so I shall order one in preparation.
