The dealer quoted me $200+ to change my fuel filter so I thought I would do it myself. I purchased a Bosch filter on line for $32. I lifted the rear of the car on ramps however I am having problems locating the filter. Behind the rear wheel on the right side is a long black canister with fuel lines coming out. Is the fuel filter inside this canister and if so, how does it open? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, can anyone recommend a good repair manual for my 2000 E320? The only ones I have found are for the 1995 models.

Thank you

Drew

Hi,
Your best bet is to invest in a 'Haynes' manual, this will have everything you need to know in it.

Thanks, I was able to work my way through it. Unless you know otherwise, I am unable to find a Haynes or any other manual for a 2000 E320. Have you been able to find one for this model?

The fuel filter is indeed located under that black right side plastic cover that you have to remove; then, you will see the filter to be changed.
