Embraer Legacy 600/650 Water Pump Failure
The water pump assembly used on the Embraer 600/650 has a high failure rate. Consequently, an outright replacement cost of the unit approaches close to $20,000. Most “repair” vendors will have bill back costs that equal the outright purchase due to the pump head being BER.
Service Letter AR9874-38-02 allows in the field repair that specifies the pump head can be removed from the main assembly, replaced and reinstalled. This eliminates the need to replace the entire water pump assembly, saving operators significant cost.
