Re: Fuel pump relay

Will any relay do, or is that a special case?  Can MB supply?

Any relay will not do as these are dedicated relays. The relays they have engine cut out to protect against over revving the engine. It could be possible to remove the casing and see if the internal contacts may be cleaned - I can't quite remember.

Re: Fuel pump relay

In case it's of any help Geoff. The fuel pump relay on my 1991 463 petrol packed up a few years ago. I got a replacement on eBay by searching using the part number. I was a bit concerned when ordering but when it arrived I simply swapped and everything was suddenly working perfectly again.

Sorry, it was quite a long time ago and I don't remember who the seller was - my eBay purchase history doesn't go back far enough.
