Check the oil level, if it's OK then replace the pump. Certainly not an actuator fault and definately no relay needed, So you need a pump and a litre of CS speed (selespeed) fluid. You've obviously mention the forum to them as they seem to have backed down now and stopped tyring to rip you off.
The cracked exhaust bracket, would that be the one on the front of the engine that supports the cats? I would have it replaced, it's only a 10 minute job to do and saves you a lot more than if the down pipe goes, plus it's only about Aus$20.
All in you shouldn't pay more than Aus$500 now for those repairs.
