Battery Fill Pump

I was unable to post to the old thread due to the date of the thread.

I just replaced my battery fill pump with one I bought on Ebay for $16 including shipping. It was listed for an 81-84 Saab 900S part #251-955-651-MY. Direct replacement works good. the box also had 100-955-002 Manufacturer is Meyle.

Battery fill pump.

After reading about some expensive replacements for the battery fill pump a while back I decided to remove the pump and replace it with an outboard motor gas squeeze bulb. Works good, cheap, no maintenance and it qualifies as exercise!

Htg3,
I had read your previous post and the squeeze pump was my back up plan. I felt $16 including shipping was a decent price and it is readily available.

Battery Fill Pump

Wayne R. I think you did good. Being a boater, I had a spare bulb in my garage so it was cost effective and handy. I don't know whether filling the batteries with gasoline was such a good idea though. I'll let you know.
JUST KIDDING! DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!

Happy Holidays

Another inexpensive replacement if the OEM system fails is a windshield washer pump bought from Pep Boys, JC Whitney, etc. I rigged one for my golf cart we keep on our winter RV lot.

Talking Battery fill pump replacement

My 2005 Alpine 34 electric battery fill pump whirred, but no water was being pumped. The cylindrical Italian OEM pump, marked "SO GE MI" on the pump and plugged into the bottom side of the reservoir may be easily replaced. The replacement pump is made by Trico Spray and is a windshield water pump part # 11-605. ($21.65 at O'Reilly's Auto Parts). The pump is held in place by a rubber grommet and the pump can be pulled out by hand or gently aided with a screwdriver. It comes straight out and does not require any turns, although turning it left and right might help free it up as you pull it out. The new Trico comes with a new grommet and no modifications are required for the installation. Just plug the new one into the new grommet (or use the old one if you wish), hook up the 12v connection and the rubber tubing and you are back in business. Take the old pump with you to the auto parts store.... They might not instantly recognize the Trico name, but rather associate the part with an automobile windshield washer replacement.
