Mercedes W212 | How To Replace Engine Fuel Filter

How to change the engine fuel filter on Mercedes-Benz. This is done on my E-Class W212 Diesel engine (OM651) but the procedure is mostly the same for other models.

If you like to do it the recommend way from MB you should use a plier special made for the click clamps part-nr (171589003700) but I don’t had any at home and the normal plier with a flat screwdriver worked flawlessly.

And you should also order new click clamps, they should not be reused again, and should not be replaced with any other type of connector.

You could also buy a new filter without the heating element and reuse it from the old filter. Is a cost saver but taking more time to do.

On my w212 e350, unfortunately the fuel filter is not as easy as this to replace or I would have done it by now! Currently sat on shelf in the garage staring at me to do it!
