Customer Question

hi the vacuum pump seems to have gone for the central locking & I need a replacement which is reasonable as the car is 2004
JA: Have you checked the fluids recently?
Customer: when you say that what do you mean?
JA: What is the model of your '04 Mercedes?
Customer: S430
JA: Are you fixing your S430 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: ( I thought it may be the fuse under the back seat & found it looked a bit technical for an old girl like me so I took it to the local european repair shop. They said that the fuse blew again & said the pump was bad but I wonder. Initially the pump was working on all but the drivers door & I could hear it sucking in the door. Now nothing is working.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I have the part number or is it possible to get the pump refurbished ?

Just to be clear. You will send them your pump and they will repair it for you.
