Did you use new check valves and crush washers when you put in the new pumps???

And are you using Bosch pumps or some knock-off brand??? Or are they used pumps???

Hopefully/probably just a retightening...
Had to do that with Anke and the 'Relay incident'... threw a sht-load of torque on it (considering I had to hold the other side with my hand.... not so much. :rolleyes: )
and it resealed. Thnkfully! :bowdown:

If it EVER attempts to leak again... I have 4 NEW crush washers STRAIGHT from BENZ!
Got a 'discount'... only $2.90/ea! :D

Tried to find some at Lowe's... but NATURALLY they were EVERY size BUT! :eek:
