Well, R & R of the water pump on a 300e requires taking off a bunch of other
stuff, which just takes time & care, but looking at the bolts on the pump
itself I see they are the dreaded Allen bolts. They are only 6mm, so a
standard L shaped Allen key just bends, without loosening the bolt. It's
pretty tight in there so I've ordered a short 6MM Allen socket to see if that
will do the trick. Anyone have any other ideas on tools for this or advice on
how not to round out the holes in those %$^%$# Allen bolts?? If they were
standard bolts I reckon I'd have the job done by now. ^%$#%^&.
