I've used the afterrun/climate control pump off Mercyless Benz's in the
TQA.  There used to be plenty in the bone yards, just make sure and cut
the connector along with the pump, it's different.  ArizAutohaus has the
Mercedes pump for around $50 new, don't know if it'll work in newer
applications, here's a pic:
