Hi,

I need a new water pump for my 1997 C180, but there's a number of different brands listed on EuroCarParts.

Manufacturer Part No Description Stock *Price
BOSCH 200220010 ADDITIONAL WATER PUMP 124 170 202 208 £124.93
S/S TO 201 201220250 S/S TO 201220251 S/S TO 201220251 £159.07
CIRCOLI 201220251 WATERPUMP M111 124 202 210 124 92-95 202 93- 210 95- £36.25
KWP 201220255 WATERPUMP M111 124 202 210 £59.81

The Bosch I'm assuming is the original part that's in my Merc at the moment, is it a false economy spending half the price (or less) on an unknown brand??

I'd rather not go for a used part, is £147 reasonable??

Hoping to order one today so if there's any advice out there I'd be very grateful!

Hard question, the early 202 cars had a plastic impeller, this was changed to alli on later cars.

What is the MB price ?
 
Just phoned MB, they're quoting £155 + VAT for pump and gasket.

The Euro Car parts price is delivered though, my nearest stealership is 30 miles each way...

Interestingly the part number they gave me is 1112004001 which is the same number on detali.ru but doesn't match the numbers from Euro Car parts even though that's what came up when I put in my make/model....

So steer clear of the cheapo versions then?

I'd never fit a used waterpump, the Bosch one seems to be listed as "ADDITIONAL WATER PUMP", so it may be the pump for the duo-valve rather than the actual pump itself.

"WATERPUMP M111 124 202 210 £59.81" is the one to go for.
 
At least when you buy from Merc you will get the correct part for your car and it will have incorporated the latest improved modifications to it, and you will know it will fit first time.

I suppose you are paying for insurance and guarantee with Merc.

It is also a selling point if you move the car on, as you can honestly tell the purchaser that it has original water pump replacement from Merc which will last ANOTHER 10 years. It would give me reassurance that things were done properly.

Give the Merc person your VIN - essential to get the correct part.

Was this true for the M111 engine only? If not then I reserve the right to be concerned! BMW also had lots of issues with plastic water pump impellors (and Valeo radiators). Mine is the 605.911 engine.

I cant answer that directly as I do not know, I will check later, as I have to do some work today
 
The Inchcape MERC MAIL ORDER site http://www.mercedes-benz-parts.co.uk/ lists A 1112004001 at £186-91 less 10% discount= £168-22 so your mercedes dealer price seems fine. Because the water pump is a vital component to the longevity of your engine- failure leading to coolant loss could potentially fry your engine and because its not an easy swap/very accessible I would personally go for the MB part in this case.

I replaced the water pump last year on my old car W202 c250 and it was an exchange item from mercedes.
From what i remember it was about £40 exchange with £25 surcharge refundable on the old unit.
 
I believe that the part number ending in 5 is a genuine part, eurocarparts give a description of the part numbering system, and i woul hazard a guess that the bosch is the heater pump (electric).
