Hi all.
MY 2000 E320 started to leak coolant from the bleeding hole on the waterpump.
The GRAF replacement pump from Autohause came with two gaskets, a rubber one and a paper one. Do I need to use both?
Thanks.

Thanks everyone.
For future reference you need to use both gaskets when replacing the water pump on the W210.
I did anyway and it seems OK, no leaking after two days of driving around.
I found Autohausaz much cheaper the German Star, $99 vs $134 for the water pump for a 2000 E320, that's 34% price difference.
Both gaskets came with the pump.

There are actually two different styles of timing covers. One requires the rubber gasket for the water pump and the other requires the paper gasket. If you have the smooth cover you use paper gasket. If the cover has a groove for the rubber gasket then you use the rubber gasket. While it shouldn't cause a problem to use both on the grooved cover only the rubber gasket is required.
