Rough estimate ?

Hello.. my car died on me the other night. Had it towed to my house. Checked everything and it looks like my fuel pump bit the dust. I checked the relay to make sure its fine and it works. I had my mechanic come check it out and he thinks its the same thing... the fuel pump died.
I wanted to know what you guys would pay to have the fuel pump replaced with a new bosch one along with a new fuel filter. Include labor to put those in. Thanks!

The car is a 1988 300SEL (m103 motor)

No idea on your actual question, however it's veni vidi vici, not "vini vedi vici", unless of course you are the very exuberant owner of a vineyard.

I have seen it written my way and written your way. I will keep my way

However, I would like a responce from an experienced mechanic or anyone who went through my situation about my original question.

I wouldnt pay...

I wouldn't pay... I would do that myself. Plenty of room back there. Not that hard to do. Maybe an hour if you include the time you spend washing your hands.

My 300SEL has one pump. Some of the 103 equipped cars have 2 - not sure about yours.

Pump is $150-$300, depending on where you buy it. I can easily see this getting billed out as a 2 hr. job. $150 to $200 labor depending on where you live, so you could be looking at $300 to $500 unless you hire a shade tree type.

As was mentioned above, this is not too tough of a diyer job. Helps to back the car up on ramps - extra room to work.

Awesome.. thanks for the reply. My car has one pump. My mechanic has his own garage in the back of his house with new lifts. He has 26 years Mercedes experience and worked at a Mercedes dealership for years. I towed the car to his place.. said he will get a new bosch fuel pump. He says he only recommends using Bosch. He's charging me $320 to install a new bosch fuel pump as well as a fuel filter. Looks like I am in the ball park. He told me that he's only charging me $60 for labor since he's going to be asking my father for a hook-up at a dental clinic to have a crown fixed. So I guess thats why I am being treated extra nicely
