Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** the hydraulic pump on the SLK is not very difficult. It should take no more than 2 hours to remove and replace the pump.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Can you send me directions or tell me where to find directions to do this?

Sorry for the wait. I think the website was down for a little while and I could not reply to you. I can send you the factory workshop instructions for replacing the convertible top pump for a small additional service fee. I've sent you the service offer if you would like the instructions.
