    Mercedes now does one replacement pump with three threaded holes for sensors. As some cars have two or even one sensor the correct technique is to fit a blanking plugs which are available from the dealer.

    The trouble is that the dealers tend to forget this and send you away with a pump that appears to be useless. The plug should be fitted with a washer which is I believe is included with the pump. Also don't forget to take the old pump back as main dealers refund about £50 if its in rebuildable condition.

    What was the problem with your pump in the end ??

    Did it need to be swapped before you could fit it ??
