Smile ML320 power steering pump R&R

Hi Folks,

I'm in the middle of the replacement of a power steering pump and reservoir on a 2000 ML320 and have run into a small problem...after I had removed the four bolts attaching the pump and bracket to the block, I began to remove the pump and noticed 2 thin washers or shims fell out. The area around the pump was covered with oil and dirt from the p/s leak and I didn't notice exactly where they came from. I have searched various forums and found several exploded diagrams of the pump and it's parts, but have not found any reference to these "shims". I want to be precise on the install and was wondering if anyone has info. on this issue. I don't have access to a factory shop manual...thanks for any help
