I m Susan the water pump came off and water started dripping and car overheated i didnt drive for very long as soon as noticed i stopped I hope

Mechanic's Assistant: What part of the car is the leak coming from? And are you sure it's water?

Yes .I can see that the water pump is very loose

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

It is ML320 year 2001 4hd - also W163

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your ML320 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am looking for the parts as it is xmas over here and most of car part stores are all closed the original mercedes not open till 2/01 but i will see if i can by something - bosch perhaps or over ebay that i can get after the boxing day

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is it wise since I have to get a new water pum also to get the upper and lower hoses and the thermostac and the radiator chain plug?

Is this real? I asked the question whether since the water pump needs to be replaced should I also replace the
Thermostat , the upper and lower radiator hose and the radiator plug ? Does this take too much time ?

all you want to know is if you should change the thermostat when you change the waterpump?
