    Hi there

    a few weeks back I purchased a tidy 1999 clk 230 compressor,92k.

    After a weeks the hood motor failed due to the motor relay sticking.

    Having checked around I was quoted £750 for a second hand pump / motor
    with 1 months guarantee which I was not at all happy with.

    After searching around I came up with a much cheaper solution.

    The motor/pump assembly is a "power packer".
    Power Packer produce pumps and motors for all the major car manufacturers so after some checking I purchased a Peugeot pump and Motor assembly on ebay.

    The pump is totally wrong but the motor fits but needs the drive on the end
    modifying.The Peugeot on has a solid shaft with a slot but the Mecedes one
    has two flats cut unto the side.It takes around 20 mins with a dremel to
    carefully rework the shaft.

    I thenhad to chop the wiring plug of the peugeot motor and solder and
    heat shrink the wires to the Mercedes loom.The Mercedes loom for the
    motor has two extra thin pink/purple wirs.These are not on the Peugeot
    motor so I left them disconected.

    The pump / motor has been back on the car and used many times now
    and has been faultless.

    Total cost of the repair was less than £100.

    Cheers - mike

    hi there

    the one I have was from a Peugeot 306.

    There are several types though.The one that fits is the one that has
    the two long bolts holding the motor together.Hard to explain but easy
    to spot when you know what to look for.

    The motor from a mk3,4,5 golf fits as well and includes the missing
    pink/purple wires.

    Cheers - mike

    Hi Mike, Thank you, I could never unstandard the cost of them as its just a motor, the pumps etc yes because its machined and has valves but the motor part, I'll keep this safe : - )

    Hi. Im trying to cure the problem here only my motor is missing altogether as last owner took off to fix and lost it! I can see tye 306 looks a similar set up but a bit confused by the wires and the two bolts description you give. All thats missing is the gold coloured motor on mine. Ive found a few 306 ones on ebay and understand the rework on the shaft but wonder if you can elaborate on the wires and what you mean by two bolts holding it together! My car has a purple wire plug with six wires (none pink thin ones).
    Your help is greatly appreciated and massive respect for spotting these motors are usable!
