Well now my secondary electric waterpump is leaking. I guess the strain of the recent problems I've had with the thermostat, radiator, and auxiliary fan fuse was too much for it.

I saw a past post that alluded to replacement o-rings for this sucker. Anybody done this or know a part number?

Check here. Send an email to Parts Shop. I am not aware of this part having replacement o-rings. Isuppose you could remove it and try to match what's there with aftermarket o-rings, but if the impeller housing is leaking (most likely), you will nedd to replace the pump, probably between $130 and $150.

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.

I had to replace one in my 190E. Coolant was spraying
by the fan when it spun. Dealer said these parts
are not rebuildable. Generally when seal leaks I believe fan assy probably has a bad bearing in it.

Well that would be a shame if parts aren't available to fix it. I disassembled it this afternoon and it appears that all it needs are o-rings. There's a large o-ring between the two halves of the pump housing. I didn't remove the impeller as it's not leaking too badly at the moment and I didn't want to make it worse until I could be sure of replacement parts. That's where the leak is though; where the shaft comes into the housing. I also took the case off the motor. The brushes look easily replaceable too.

Curiosity satisfied, I cleaned it all up, put it back together, and reinstalled. This will be an easy one if I can source parts. I'll check Parts Shop as suggested.

Whether I fix this one or buy new one, I'm thinking seriously of putting an in-line water-proof fuse holder in series with the pump harness. Previous posts say that when these pumps pull too much current they destroy the climate control unit.
