New to this forum, new to MBZ and have a waterpump question???

I am new to mercedes and own a 99 ml320 with only 104000 miles and it leaks a little water and now the fan and pulley assembly wobble. Was wondering if it's a a easy DIY fix and how long should it take for me or a shop to replace the waterpump? I really enjoy this car and need it back on the road and any advice would help and be greatly appreciated... Thanks

Welcome aboard. Please click user cp and add your vehicle and location to your profile, it's useful information.

The new member forum is more of a place to say hi and introduce yourself. Tech stuff is best left to the specific forum for your chassis, which is the W163 forum. Scroll down the main page and you'll see it.

If you've done a water pump before there isn't anything particularly special about the M112. Pulling the fan clutch assembly is probably the hardest part. Swap out the tensioner and idler pulley while you're there.

But...don't take my word for it. There are some excellent tech people in the 163 forum, as you'll find out.

Good luck.
