new member: water pump problems
Hi I've had my Mercedes CLK 200 for just over two years. It's a 1999 example bought in mint condition with low mileage. I've been absolutely delighted with it - in fact I much prefer the look to the more modern less distinctive shape. Had no trouble until last week when the water pump began squealing and then rattling followed by seizure. Is this somethng that happens to waterpumps after 60,000 miles? I have bought a new one, which will shorlty be installed. Is this a straightforward job to rectify? Can anyone advise on the pitfalls? Thanks......
