1997 Mercedes-Benz E420 Q&A

1997 Mercedes-Benz E420 Question: fuel filter location

Can you tell me where to find the fuel filter in my E-420? -
Answer 1
Unfortunately I don't think you're going to like my answer. The Fuel Filter in that model of Mercedes is in the fuel tank. Typically with fuel filters in the tank the only time you would replace one is if the fuel pump goes out. Our labor guide shows approximately four hours to remove the tank, blow out the lines and replace fuel filter. -
Answer 2
It is not in the gas tank! it is under the car approx.drivers side rear seat.remove the 3 10mm nuts from cover to expose.next to the fuel pump.i know this is correct because i just replaced mine. -
