There is a difference in labor between following MB repair manual and taking shortcut.

In MB's repair manual, I remember there are more than 30 pages for rebuilding PS pump, I believe it can take up to 6 hours.

The shortcut is to only remove the frontal half of the PS pump, and change the frontal main seal and some inside seals, it takes less, but I would still think 4 hours is the minimum for such a job.

I did my pump by myself a year ago, I took shortcut, it took me, a DIYer, 8 hours, part cost is something like $20.

Still missing the days with the Benz, it kept me busy.
