If you want to change your oil pump, because you get a low oil pressure warning, dont even go the route of changing your oil pump, chances that your pick up is blocked is the most common cause, try using a small brush that fits through the sump plug and clean the pick up as best you could. Secondly change to synthetic oil and change every 5000km and filter, the problem should go away. As for changing the oil pump, it is a F*^%$ huge job, rather take it to the dealers or mechanic.
