hi ive never taken my water pump off but i would have thought that the pulley is bolted on from the front i dont suppose there is a cover over the front of the bolt is there have a good look at it i have come across this before on other vehicles hope this helps.

Hi Gary Ive just finished replacing the water pump on my 2000 108 CDI vito..... after a MASSIVE coolant leak. Turned out the bearing inside had completely disintegrated. The idler pulley you mention has a plastic cover in the centre that you can pop off with a screwdriver quite easily this reveals a single bolt that you need to undo allowing you to remove the pulley and get to that final bolt. I managed

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito CDI Water pump (broken)

There was before some screaming sound like belt was flipping but now temp goes over 90 degrees in winter and fan goes on. I take it out that little pipe wich goes to radiator refill tank and make it to clear pipe. Theres no fluid going trough the pipe when car is running only air bubbles and little fluid bobbles. Could it be water pump it not make any bad sound or leaking. Thank you.

Hi mate the little pipe on the side of the expansion bottle at the filler neck is for over flow if the pressure gets to high in the system it just drains out on to the floor it does sound like your water pump could of gone bang sorry.

I dont mean that over flow pipe. That little pipe wich goes to refill tank left side and where belongs fluid going.

If i remove radiator filler cap and put car running that little pipe in left upper that big black pipe there goes air and sometimes little fluid bobbles. So is it possible that waterpump dont work normally or are we talkin head gasket failure If i run car fast heat comes in the cabin but normally it blows all time cold. And also there is pressure in radiator after night.

HI you need to do a sniff test on the expansion tank to see if the headgasket gone or maybe may be a cracked head it could be water pump or air trapped in the system good luck.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 638 112 cdi water pump removal

My van decided to spit its serpentine belt off the other day after checking all the pulleys I can feel the water pumps pulleybearing doesnt feel quite right everything else seems to be inline and feeling good so Ill get one ordered and swap it over along with a new belt and possibly a new tensioner pulley. Any hints and tips from anyone thats done this before Or possibly a cheeky PDF manual Ive had

Well that is certainly not the most fun you can have with a vito For anyone thats interested I removed the engine mount for more space and also took 3 of the alternator bolts out and loosened the fourth so I could pivot the alternator out of the way to get the water pump out and e new one in. To me thats the easiest option rather than removing the crank pulley or dropping the motor

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 vito dashboard switches

can anyone help with symbols on the dash switches bought used 2001 vito with no users manual. One switch which has the symbol of a fuel pump on it has now lit up with a red triangle. 14 tank of fuel and so far all seems to be running ok. Any idea what it is Can I get a user manual anywhere

the water Separator switch (Diesel engines). The manual says The water separator serves to absorb the water from fuels which have a high water content. It is integrated in the fuel filter. The indicator lamp is located on the centre console. If the lamp lights up while the vehicle is being driven this indicates that the water separator should be drained. The water separator can be drained at any mercedes-benz

Hello Everyone I have been intensely reading this forum and individual threads which describe similar symptoms to mine but I have seemingly tried checked anything that I have learnt to no avail. I will be having this car towed to a private mechanic (not dealer) who will hopefully isolate the fault and get my van back on the road. However I thought I would ask the question if anyone may know if I have


My ABS system is not working but the fault light isnt lit. I have changed the brake fluid (dot4)and bleed the lines . After I did this the first winter I got use for the ABS I felt the abs pump working for about a second or two but then it silenced like it got stuck or a fuse went out . Anyone have experience with this 638 108D -97mod

Found this on ebay might be something to it.... Mecedes vito ABS pump came off a 55 reg vito 111 CDI these all suffer from the same fault (apparently) which is a seal goes when the brake fluid has water in it. This has been hinted at the cuase being lazy servicing from mercedes. This Van had 26 k on the clock when this was stripped out last year. Replacement part from mercedes is approx 2000

HI chaps...ive been looking into this veg oil conversion for a while and saved up enuf &163 to convert my 108D traveliner....thought it might be useful to keep a sort of diary blog. Apoloigies its on another forum (i moderate it so easier for me to do it there) but hopefully you will find it useful and informative in these times of &1631.10 a litre VWKD - VW Camper and Beetle Conversion from aircooled

good idea - why didnt i think of that...... here you go.... IM doing this conversion on my Merc vito traveliner so I can drive round for free....not strictly on a VW but this is transfereable to ANY diesel vehicle....and since some of us on here run on diesel....I thought a how to might be useful to dispel some myths and summarise all my research over the last months. Background..... Tax - it is now

Next up was the wiring....this is my personal worst bit of anything so I wasnt looking forward to it. The kit comes with 3 assembled looms and a wiring diagram.....but theres also a list of wiring allocations so I used this. The first job was to decide where to mount the relays fuse box (this comes pre-assembled) and identify a good earth point switched live and permanent live. SO first i loosely

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 113 vito oil leak

Greetings from down under. I am new to MB but looking forward to years with a 113 vito Van my son acquired last week. Very comfortable to drive and powerful enough to climb us through the steep winding dirt roads of banana fields and dairy country from Coff Harbour to the inland of New South Wales Australia. We have been fortunate to discover a number of problems like non-operating wipers stuck doors

I have a 113 99 petrol vito get a bright torch and look from under neath to the rear of the block sounds like from either the oil pump or up towards the timing chain tensioner (back of the block) or from around the oil pump. Best thing I guess to do would be to get a couple of good cans of aerosol degreaser and spray the back of the engine and surrounding areas clean and monitor where the leak is coming

Hi All Im a brand new member and new to MB having just bought a vito 108 cdi. It starts fine and runs ok but seems to make quite a loud air noise under acceleration which sounds like its coming from the air box area.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 W638 Vito head gasket fun

Well the head gasket is definitely knackered in my 113 vito I thought it was using a bit of water then the oil turned into caramel. After a week and a half of struggling to get the head off with sheared torx bolts and trying to get certain tools locally (small country town with crap tool merchants) and that stinking timing chain shield retainer it is finally off. I have since found the manifold cracked

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Some Vito questions

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito 110CDi intermittent limp mode

Hi there I have searched these forums for some help but am still scratching my head... I have a 2002 vito 110 CDi and it intermittently enters what I now know is Limp Mode. Its not just on the motorway that this happens (though that is when I really notice it) and not just in fifth gear as Ive read some others have had issues with. I can be quite happily driving for an hour or more sometimes at around

No I dont have an ASR button on the dash... I think my vito is too old (2002) There is a switch which has a petrol pump and what looks like water droplets on it which Im not sure of its function. Nothing happens when I push it... It used to light a red bulb inside the switch but now it does nothing. My Tyres are ok both fronts are low but legal.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Looking to buy a Merc Vito - 2004-2006. What to look out for

Hey All Im leaving the world of Volkswagens and entering the world of mercedes. Im in the cleaning business and need a van for work. Found a 2004 vito 109CDI with 241000km on the odometer. What do I look out for Do you think that is too many km on the clock Im hoping the dealer will let me take the car to my mechanic so they can put it on the hoist and check it out before I buy it... But they probably wont let me

I have had a couple of vitos 04 and now a 08List of problems brake light switch water pump. Thats pretty much it.great vans .I run mine 5 days a week as a courier and never had a issue Those kms should be ok. Guys work have 3-4 hundred thousand kms and running strong.

MERCEDES BENZ 123 123 Flow Tube Injection Pump Timing 240D Seattle

So I am living in Seattle for the time being and spent the last 3 months driving all over this here country (coast to coast) in my 1983 240D. Now that I am here Ive noticed (and heard) that somewhere along the way my injection pump has loosened up (engine vibration Im sure) and now its making that tell tale click clack clicking sound that I assume is from the diesel igniting in the pre combustion chamber

Pour a bottle of Red Line SL-1 (from CarQuest some other stores also carry it) fuel injection system cleaner in your veggie tank drive it down I-5 to Tacoma and back and see if you hear any difference. Ive been running 87% veggie cleaned down to 5 microns in a single-tank system completely unmodified for about 25000 miles now in my 85 300D. But my IP was rebuilt using viton gaskets about two years

Well I adjusted them right around the time that I put the Veg system in so I think it was about 10000 miles ago too. I am using all bio diesel grade fuel hose but I could understand that the gaskets in the IP could be getting eaten up. Hmmm. Those viton gaskets are readily available I think that I will start with the fuel injector cleaner first. If that wont work Ill try Friedels and the injector route.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito or YAN (Yet Another Transporter)

Hi there I am thinking of buying a vito. I did not see any vito specific forums listed apart from this one so I thought I would ask here first I have a 1998 VW T4 Transporter (Eurovan) which has served me well and the logical replacement would be the T5...but...I have always liked the look of the vito and looking around you seem to get more van for the money over here compared to the VW.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Mysterious plug - Mercedes Vito W638

Hi Whilst replacing the o rings on my vito fuel pump regulator I came across a plug (close to the fuel filter) that looks like it should go somewhere but it has me scratching my head any ideas what this is for It is a 2003 (03) mercedes vito 108CDI Many thanks for any guidance on this.

I attach a generic document on the fuel filter. if the water seperator is fitted it is ON THE BOTTOM of the fuel filter case. you say youve changed the filter..... did you bleed the air out of the system its meant to be automatic... it never is and ANY air bubbles can cause the fuel not to pump and the sensors will shut the engine down. the water seperator is on the first pdf the other (bigger) pdf

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito Ownership experiences - one year on....

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS V 6382 Vito V plate Cold Air Blows Until Thermostat Opens..

Hi people. I have a vito 112 on a v plate which blows cold air most of the time. I had the thermostat replaced as i presumed that this was stuck open but no difference. Ive since noticed that i only get heat when the thermostat kicks inopens and the engine temperature drops. The heater starts working but the matrix cools down soon after presumably when the stat closes again. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated as its just too cold and icy Thanks in advanced.

Would the water pump be the problem as the engine keeps cool as doesnt overheat Where is the temp sensor located The water circulates when the stat is open as i get a burst of heat so could it be a mis-plumed hose (or just a little help from gravityheat rising) Any thoughts or WIS diagrams on the cooling system would be appreciated.

Ive tried to refill the system as suggested but then water starts pouring out when i drive around. It sometimes overheats on longer journeys. The garage have changed the thermostat and today checked the water pump which is ok so they are scratching their heads The water is clear bar somthing copperlike floating around which could be K-Seal Any ideas If its kseal would this block the heater matrix and cause these pressure problems

Yeah i was thinking of oil dripping out of the end of the exhaust or water for that matter. Things that can cause those symptoms are as said turbo failure or head gasket but it could be the injector pump having a fit but very unlikely. None of those things would normally link in with no glow plug light showing though. The reving of the engine imply s that it was fueling itself from somewhere either
