    Good morning,

    Just been told the tandem pump on my S600L Biturbo needs replacing.

    What should this cost?

    Is it an engine out job?

    Thank you,

    Mark.

    Hey Mark, the pump itself I think is about 1k, the engine doesn't have to come out but these do - bottom plastic covers - right side coolant line - fan shroud - power steering reservoir - ABC reservoir, then the pump can come out. The refilling and bleeding is also a pain.

    I do not know the cost or actual labor time.

    Mark, a rebuild kit can be bought online. A fellow member here has rebuilt his ABC Tandem pump with this kit. There is also photo DIY on the US forums. Seal kit is approx £100. Look for member m2287 for more info(Aidan). HTH

    Thanks to all.

    BlackC55,

    is 4.4 hours a Mercedes 'book' time for the Biturbo?

    If you can find a rebuilt pump then the 4.4 hours doesn't sound too bad.
