F11 Air Susspension Solonoid?

New here, so hope I’m posting in the right place.
I ve got a 2011 F11, the suspension has gone flat at the back, pump won’t raise it.
Pump would just run, ran the battery flat… I took the fuse out to stop this.
Found the Relay in the spare tyre well (battery hole) was corroded… replaced, but still won’t pump up, although pump now cuts out after a short effort!
I watched a bunch of videos, read the posts and decided to order a solonoid and take the pump out! I did this at the weekend only to find I have a different solonoid (see photo).
The pump is a BMW pump, although someone has been in the pump housing at some point!
I cleaned and dried the needs in the pump (not that they were wet) and reassembled… but no better.
Any thoughts on the solonoid?
