fredmec00 The Vemo pump I installed is running fine in my SLK55.
The code for the pump is V30-09-0052. Invoice attached.

You just need to be very careful when taking apart the plastic housing, see the pictures I previously posted in this thread. The plastic housing is hard to un-clip, it is very brittle and if mishandled it will break. The original mercedes Part compromises the pump + housing.

Cheers,
Fred

Any further information would be appreciated.

Pump for SLK55 2009, unit V30-09-0052

Gents,

My car is running again. I would like to share my chosen solution. I changed only the pump and reused the housing.

The complete assembly (pump + housing), P/N A2114702194, was informed by master Jeff in the thread. This part is correct! The retail cost for this unit is 390 euros, tax excluded.

I decided to order the pump on its own, since the housing looked perfetly fine in my case. Speaking with German autoparts seller and sending pictures of the pump, we came up with V30-09-0052, same pump used in other AMGs 55. It is manufactured by Vierol in Germany and the cost, 150 euros.

Today I took the assembly apart and replaced the pump (only). They are identical and it worked as a charm. As I said, car is running great.

I am sharing the pictures for others that may want to select this lower cost option as a fix for a faulty pump.

Best Regards,
Fred

fredmec00 Thanks Jeff, you are quick!

I searched in the internet and this part is hard to get. Only found an used item as an assembly.

Perhaps the one below will fit. I need to do further search...

Help with stuck connector on fuel pump

Well I am at this place too and could use some help understanding how the hose connector to the pump works. I have the ears of the connector pried outwards (pictured), but after some serious pulling in that enclosed space it hasn't even budged! How hard to I need to pull? Am I missing how the connector locks to the flange on the pump?

Thanks up front for any help!

Efair, Avel Du and Topaz. Ok last up I was struggling to get the plastic pump housing apart.
Mercedes wanted £350 for the pump, I should imagine that it would come with all of the necessary parts ready assembled in the plastic housing I was talking about with all of the pipes and wires etc. As I am a cheapskate I thought it was a bit excessive so I managed to source a pump online for £50 (brand new). £300 for some plastic , wire and tubes...... Really Mercedes?
So the plastic housing , in the end I just had a temper tantrum with it and gave it a pull, lo and behold it came apart, no screws nothing just 4 lugs holding it together .... winner
So what I had to do is take the 2 rings off the old pump and fit them gently (don't hammer it) to the new pump, these along with the rubber type restrainers are what hold the pump loosely in the plastic housing, I did struggle attaching the main pipe to the pump and it would probably be better to get a really small jubilee clip instead of trying to force the existing clip on.
And that was it, put her back together and she's running like a dream
The pump I bought was made by the same company that made the original VDO
Moral of the tale is .... shop around, struggle a bit and use this forum and the great people on here.

Topaz I would wait and see what part you get before you do anything else, although it's been a while I don't remember having take the fuel pump assy apart when replacing pumps in the past. It's normally a straight swap over.. I could be wrong however.

Also how did you test for a short?

From the pictures I can't make out at all what the head is to be honest! Can you get better shots with more light? At a guess they look like an security bit called 'snake eye' - they come in various different sizes. I can't ever remember them ever being used on Merc's but you will be able to see from the picture on the link below as to whether it will fit the screw head better than I can from that picture. They could also be one way shear bolts that use a flat heads, but taper on one side and 'tighten only' they will need drilling out. Both complete guesses until we can get a better photo. Again though, I would wait and see what part arrives before going any further.

SoulDazz Oh Thank you so much Avel Du
I've still got a day or so before the new pump arrives, it may already be in the housing I don't know yet, so I'm loathe to start hack sawing through this housing if there is a solution.
Any help you can give me is truly appreciated and hopefully it may help some other member at some time in the future.

Thanks again
Dazz

Avel Du I can't find anything that looks useful.


We have a new member who is ex service dept.


I'll tag him and see if he can help. He's UK too.

@Topaz


I've pm'd him too.
He looks to be online regularly.

I've got some dodgy photo's of the screwhead but I've never seen anything like it, Torx, Phillips and Straight screwdrivers don't work. Do I need a special tool? anybody give me a clue? TIA

Hmm!


Might be a special tool.
I'll have a look on the system but I struggle looking for special tools.


If any other mods/minions happen by please have a look.
