Supplementary to my other post in this thread, you should be able
to get the EPC (eletronic parts catalogue) on CD from your local
Merc dealer. You just need the chassis number of your car.
They might not wish to sell it to you though, if they are anything
like the dealers in the UK. If that is the case, then mail the man in
Germany whose e-addy is contained in my other post. Try your local
If you e-mail this man: firstname.lastname@example.org ,
he will send you an EPC (electronic parts catalogue) on CD for
around 35 euros plus 16% German tax and postage.
You will need to tell him the chassis number of your vehicle, and
the year of manufacture.
You will get delivery of the CD about three weeks after you order it,
and you will then get the equivalent of a microfiche parts catalogue
that you can view on your PC. This should give you an exploded-
diagram of the rack pump, plus the parts numbers of all the items.
(You can also order parts from him at German prices, but don't tell
too many people about that :) ) Presumably you would have to pay
import tax into the US, which I do not, living as I do in Britain where
there is free transfer of goods across the EU, so long as tax has been
paid in the country where the stuff was bought.
He understands English, and is a nice, polite man who is very helpful.
