Hello, my name is Mark and I will try help you with this.
If the seat has failed because it is rocking then you first have to determine if it rocking due to missing anchor bolts or because the seat frame is worn. If the seat frame is worn then it is easier to replace it with one from a breakers yard.
It would also be quicker and cheaper if you replaced the ABS unit with one from a breakers yard. However you can possibly get it repaired by removing it and sending it away to a specialist company such as http://www.bba-reman.com/content.aspx?content=remanufactured_abs_controllers_pumps_and_modulators_from_bba_reman_bosch_teves_lucas_and_all_other_types&commfail=true
This would mean the car being off the road for a while until you got the unit back.
You can find parts online by going to http://www.partsgateway.co.uk/

Ok thank you would the abs pump be easy to install myself or would it be a difficult job
Are you experienced in mechanical repairs?
Replacing the pump is not that difficult but bleeding the brakes after can sometimes be.
