Download the w021 manual from the FAQ section, install it, run it and you'll be fine with this job provided that you are mechanically inclined wirth german engineering (tough and cool at the same time)

That's the water pump from a 16v. Replacing it isn't that hard really. All of those bolts sticking up at the ones you need to remove. Along with the fan cover, fan, belt and pulley. It's directly right in front of you. You will have more space if you remove the radiator also.

Here's a nice tip remember the order/placement of the bolts because their all different lengths.

16v Water Pump Adapter Kit

Watch out.

For a dealer supplied replacement 16v water pump, you have to also purchase a conversion kit that has adapters, bolts and washers that the new pump needs to adapt to the old hoses and the original mounting points and their bolt holes.

If you do not get it, the new pump will not mount to the car.

wow i opened a can of worms thanks for all the replies and advice but it's not so much that i wouldn't be able to do it just thought it would go by faster add a little socializing with a fellow mercedes guy that has done it before .... i would feel more comfortable with somebody helping out besides my 5 year old watching me .....and i would never give a child alcohol maybe some weed though ...not

I missed the part in the beginning about you not having it registered. You pay my gas and ill shoot up and do it for you. Gas shouldn't be more than a 20 spot.

Now that is a MOD going above and beyond his duties.
