It's funny, I was thinking of this the other day. I haven't seen anyone selling refurbished ones, but in a previous life, I used to be a marine electronics design & service engineer, and would think nothing of refurnishing/reworking PCBs.


If you end up getting a new PSE pump, I would love your old one to see what can be done with it.

I have had no luck with the quest for an alternative source and conclude that it must be MB dealer source. The prices asked on Ebay etc and Salvage Yards for salvage parts both in the UK and in Europe generally are not worth the risk and represent poor value.
The part is reliable until damaged by water ingress which is a design flaw in the R170. However the problem may not be solved entirely with a new PSE unit as the connector itself is also subject to corrosion but it is available as a separate part.
Good luck in your search.
