A similar common fault to that of the BMW Mini with the electric Power Steering Pumps, the unit in this Mercedes A-Class is also an electric (Electro-Hydraulic) power steering pump and it is known to continuously run until it eventually burns out.
Mercedes Part Number: A168 466 0601
The continuous running of these pumps is not what they were designed to do. You turn the engine off and walk away from the car, you can still hear the pump running. – It is draining the power from the battery and eventually burns out the motor and circuitry.
We can remanufacture these pumps, i.e. rebuild your own units & due to the popular demand we are now carrying these units in stock as well, ready to exchange with you same day. All rebuilt Mercedes A-Class power steering pumps will come with a Lifetime warranty.
We can also offer a very affordable fitting service for this pump in which we can include a free collect & return of your vehicle (dependant on your location). We also work with over 30,000 garages nationwide so if you’d prefer to just have the pump delivered to you, give us a call today on 0208 853 3343.
