I bought a 83 380sl with about 151,000 miles on it and everything seems fine but I noticed the fuel pump sounds loud. is this because it is mounted open or is it going bad? my feeling is to replace it, what do you think? Thanks David!!

I've got a 1980 450SL purchased 2/02. The fuel pump noise is annoying to me especially with the hard top on. Other cars I test drove were not as bad. The sounds is a hum. Everyone I spoken with and a mechanic who looked at it says that its normal. However, I would like to find out how to make it quieter. I'ld buy a new one but I'm not convinced it will be better.
