E500 w211 water pump

I need to change the water pump of my 2005 e500, it has the oil cooler next to the oil filter. Thing is I can't find nowhere a water pump with 3 outlets, and when i find it says it fits the e55 amg but not the e500. I found one on geekparts but since I'm outside of the US it wont take my card. Any suggestions or links to where I can find. The pump I found was graf with 3 outlets, it was about $74 which is a bargain considering what i've read and comparing prices.

I replaced one on our E500 awhile back. It is a bolt on deal. As I recall it wasn't so hard and didn't require any special tools. I usually don't completely drain the cooling system, only take the level down to just below the water pump. Use the proper recommended coolant to mix with distilled water only to refill the system when your done. Resist the temptation to use tap water as it contains minerals that can cause issues with the system.

Be thankful that you can actually change the water pump DIY on these engines still as many newer vehicles have the water pumps internal to the engine, That's right, some newer vehicles you have to completely remove the front covers from the engine to access the internal timing chain driven water pumps. Kinda going the way of the heater cores and AC evaporators where you have to remove the dashboard to get at them. I fully believe they are designing these newer vehicle systems so the "average Joe" can't do the work themselves.

NOT MB but definitely bad Ford engineering. Note the water pump location on a very common engine in their line-up. Burried and when it goes, it leaks coolant into the engine block. Wow.
