Does anyone know if the new pump needs to be primed first? I have a 05 545 and I don't understand why either new pump works. I went to two different providers for the pumps and both website provide the same pump part number.

anyone else experience this issue?
We don't need to prime the washer fluid pump.

Other than the leak, the old pump is working fine? Water is coming out of the jets with the old pump?

There is a strainer/filter and the grommet fits over the inlet of the pump and that grommet assembly sits in the opening of the tank. Are you sure you are installing correctly?
