    Hi,

    I wondered if anyone can advise if I need any specialist tools to replace a high pressure diesel pump on my Mercedes Sprinter.

    My vehicle is actually in France and I would need to go with all tools / parts etc to carry out the repair.

    Are there any timing issues or calibration required when fitting new pump.

    Alternatively, does anyone know or have experience of a workshop mechanic around the south Reims area who could carry out the work ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Chris

    From what i gather (from having an ongoing fuel issue on my sprinter) They just go in and out with regard to timing, it's done from the ECU.

    Special tools sadly i can't be of much help.

    Autodata says 5 hours. I'm guessing that that includes bleeding + flushing the system etc.

    You are going to do that aren't you? bits of metal from the pump in the fuel line aren't good.

    hi
    if its the one on the front of the engine, no special tools, just be careful with the fuel pipes.
    can be done with the front, on but so much easier taking off the front pannel and rad and probably quicker

    regards
