Hi Guys,

I am trying to buy a water pump from eurocarparts.com or gsfcarparts.com, and there are two listed for my car on each (confusing me):

eurocarparts.com:
WATER PUMP M103(HOLE ON 1 SIDE 107 124 6 9 201 460 (260-300) AUTO RHD FROM 043383 TO 050974
or
WATER PUMP M103 HOLE BOTH SIDE AUTO.MODELS,107,126,201,85-93
AUTO RHD UPTO 043382

gsfcarparts.com:
201: 190E 2.6 103.942 09/86>08/93 Auto >Eng.22 043382>
or
201: 190E 2.6 103.942 09/86>08/93 Auto Eng.22 043383>

I am a little confused by the numbers that they are qualifying the parts with..... Are they the last 6 digits of the VIN? My VIN ends in 960006, which doesn't seem to fit any of them. I thought it may have been the engine block number, but I cannot find that anywhere.

Can anyone help me?

Your Engine number should be on your V5 (Log Book) document.

Thanks for pointing that out! Not being too familiar with British car paperwork, I had not thought of that.

Cheers.

Hmm. Engine number of 070126 still doesn't really help. Might have to call them tomorrow and find out.

Form past experience with parts supplier,I usually just have to tell them the year of Manufacture and the model number like W124,126...
Is their business to get the right part for you

Have a look on the side of the engine block itself - mine is there, on a sticker (as well as the V5)

Thanks guys - got the engine number off the V5, and then the parts supplier gave me bits for the WRONG engine.

tee hee - europarts by any chance?

Bingo! A stuffed animal for the man in the front row. :)

I went to the one in East London and they were very, very, very, very busy. Problem is I cannot really get back there until next week. :-(
