turns out to be the SAM module I will replace it tomorrow or next day. I replaced the switch no dice. Oh when I punch the gas BAS and ABS lights come on.
its on the washer bottle on the side closest to the engine at the bottom on my 430
ill have the car back tomorrow. So its actually on the water bottle itself I unscrewed the washer bottle but the side closest to the engine has a heat shield attached. Anyone have any pics Is there a DIY posted on here I couldnt find one. Thanks for all your help
Thanks for all your help. took me 30 mins to swap out the pump and put everything back together.
OK. Thats the right fuse. Possibly it blew when the old pump seized. Now you have fitted a new fuse and the new pump does not operate. Without my WIS to check the circuit path in detail Im not sure what is going on here. There is the switch the control module and the wash water pump wiring to consider. If you bench test the pump it will work you say. How about using a testmeter to check for a good

Dont know if the pump runs. How can I tell The pop-up item... So my car has the covers beneath the headlights which i presume is where the headlight washer jets are located - having never seen them - im assuming the flaps move ot the way and the jets appear by magic and spray water onto the lenses. I certainly have the washer button on console by the lights. Its a clk500 with Xenon headlights. I will
Quote Originally Posted by martinharris10 Dont know if the pump runs. How can I tell First - I assume that you have water in the reservoir and that the windscreen wiper washer is working OK. As Rudeney says above there are two pumps in the reservoir and the water is shared. If you raise the bonnet (hood) and turn on the ignition (but dont start the engine) then press the headlight wash button with
I also had this fault on mine though it was somewhat intermittent. Turned out to be a seizing pump. I presume the wscreen wash is ok Its the same reservoir so that rules out the obvious One other interesting thing you can try is to park up against a wall at night with the headlamps on. Press the washer button and look for any slight dimming of the lights momentarily. On mine I could only detect this

Your fault could be either a) Combination switch (S4) - pressing
You are in the wrong forum here. This is for W209 owners and your question really should be on the W164 M Class forum. However your windshild washer system is very similar to that on the W209 clk. The windshield washing pump (M51) and the headlamp cleaning pump (M52) are housed inside the washer reservoir and access to these is by removing the front section of the fender liner on the front left wheel.
My wifes clk windshield washer pump is not working. When you push the stalk nothing happens (arent the wipers supposed to swipe). The wipers work as they should when you turn the stalk. I removed the connection at the motor and put on a voltohm meter - I get a little over 3 volts continuously no change when the stalk is pushed. Maybe need a diagram on the front electronic controller so I can check that.
Quote Originally Posted by 560sec944 My wifes clk windshield washer pump is not working. When you push the stalk nothing happens ( arent the wipers supposed to swipe ). Yes. A bit of a clue there.. I think that when the screen washer switch is pressed a signal goes to the wiper system to command 3 wipes. So my first thought here are that the switch is toast. (one part of the combination switch) Quote
Update Sorry Greg - just done a more specific search for washer pump grommet and got plenty of threads to read through. So my question has changed... I know the W210 E class share engine bays with the W208 clk but are there any other models with similar engine bays where the washer pump set-up may be the same. I cant see a W208 in the search results. Thanks Max

Quote Originally Posted by jstetor53 k I dont have a camera here at work but let me see if I can explain my leak it is very easy . If you look at the front corner of your washer bottle (inboard coroner) you will see the pump its a vertical cylinder with a wire plug on top. At the bottom of the pump you will see a braided hose leading out of the pump there is a black clip that just slides on and off
Greetings. My clk55 has the slow drip from the backside(where the fluid supply tube enters) of the drivers side headlight washer pump. NOT the pump on the actual reservoir tank. Ive searched but cant seem to find a specific procedure on how to remove this pump for closer inspectionpotential replacement. Any suggestions Id prefer to get it fixed properly vs clamping offcutting off the hosesupply to it. Thanks
The washer pump motor washer fluid level sensor and coolant level sensor are wired in such a way that if one is disconnected you can get errors on both the coolant and washer fluid levels. I know this because I had a bad washer fluid pump. It was leaking and it wasnt just the grommet where it passed into the tank but the pump itself. I removed it to work on it later but drove the car to work. With

Quote Originally Posted by Arlmm1 .

I have no idea what is that hole for. There is also a connector hanging on the side... maybe the washer fluid indicator was there and now is gone. MB do not make cars with hoses going nowhere
Quote Originally Posted by DonJuan So given that the problem didnt occur due to me pressing the switch and assuming it was the lamp switch module fuse that they showed me removing that fuse wouldnt actually stop the headlight washers if the problem repeats itself would it Well the only common thing between the headlamp washing switch & the lights switch is that they share the same little panel. There
One thing to note is that the wiring for the washer pump(s) and washer level sensor is somehow wired in series with the coolant level sensor. Case in point I removed my washer reservoir to fix a leak and with it out and the wiring disconnected from the pump and level sensor I started getting low coolant warnings. I looked at the wiring diagrams and found that they share some connections. I assume it
The common element here with the windscreen washer system is the reservoir which they both share. M51 is the windscreen pump located alongside the reservoir. M52 looks like it is inside the reservoir but that may be a bad image in my WIS. Unfortunately the working parts are located behind your front left fender liner so are not easily accessible. My guess would be either the in-car switch S41 or a blockage in the water hoses enteringleaving the pump. cheers
Wait Isnt the pump located in the washer fluid reservoir the same one that is used on the windshield washer My windshield washers work perfectly... It is the headlight washers that do not work...
Finally... I bought a new headlight washer pump jacked up the driver side and removed the driver side front wheel popped open the access panel located just inside the front fender well drained the washer tank removed the old pump popped the new one in put everything back together started the car pushed the headlight washer button and BLAM... THE HEADLIGHT washerS ARE WORKING AGAIN Overall a very simple proceedure
Old post - but I just did this today and it really is easy. 22 pump off eBay and 20 mins of your time. You dont need to remove the wheel just turn the steering wheel the whole way to the left so you have adequate room. I also did not remove the fluid just make a plan and switch out the pumps quickly. Wow those things can shoot too I can wash half of the clk with them
I ran into the same problem with my windshield washers this week. My mechanic says the washer pump is a common failure point on these cars. I had my washer pump replaced and the problem is fixed. The pump cost me about 30. Good luck

Dry it clean it and put a 12 inch wide thin layer of clear silicone over crack inside tank. This is a cheap 5 repair that will last for many many years. Also it could be a failed washer pump When I bought my 98 w210 the water kept pouring out and i thought my tank was cracked it turned out to be a leaking washer pump that was worn and leaking from internal seals to the outside of tank.
