Having been mercedes free for 3 years I have jumped headlong into a cl500 (even after knowing about ABC issues) cut a long story short car is now peeing power steering fluid on drive (suspension reservoir fine) I am taking a worst case scenario that the abc pump is leaking? or should I look at other things first, what do you all think..any help is appreciated.

Update

Well having spoken to a indy it seems the tandem pump is most likely the culprit, will have it on a ramp to confirm but looks like a recon pump is needed.
Anybody out there reconditioned one of these pumps as it doesn’t sound as simple as changing the seals?

There is a company on German eBay that does recon units for around £400 I think. Alternatively there is another company in London that does them if you search the forum, I can't remember their name.

I don't know anyone that has tried rebuilding one but I have a shot one I am going to try and rebuild in the summer with a mate.
