The ABC pump on my CL55 has gone west so I was wondering if anyone knows of anywhere that refurbishes them or should I just bite the bullet and buy a new one from Mercedes?

Early indications seem to suggest a refurb will be circa £250-300 and a new unit from the dealer will be about £750ish.

Thanks for the advice, I'll get to work on the parts department and see how much discount I can get...

Personally I'd go for a new one. At least that way the parts and labour are warranted for 24 months. I've seen very few successful pump rebuilds over the years. It's not a massive job doing the pump replacement but it can turn into a right headache if it goes wrong.

Got it down to £660 including VAT from the dealer, that'll do for me!
