How do I get the primer pump off?(68220D)

I just got my new primer pump and cant figure out how to get in there. it is so close to the injection pump and some bolts on the other side i couldn't possibley get a wrench in there. is this a job for vice grips?

I used vice grips on the pump in the 300SD. Made a mess out of the pump.The new version is much thinner and can be tightened with a wrench.

Good luck!

There is a wrench, I forgot the name but, vice grips work, and as mentioned you will trash the pump, even with the grips it is a chore, the new one will make your life easier

A standard basin wrench works perfectly. The body is metal and the basin wrench will grip it properly.

Are we sure this all applies to a 220d? I seem to recall a posting here by a Scottish gentleman dealing with a similar issue and hise pump was integral to the fuel pump in a different way than the models we are usually familiar with.

then you would simply replace the o-rings correct?
