Most owners do not have a big enough hex wrench to remove the fuel tank screen on those models that had the fuel tank right under the rear trunk floor. But the screen does need to be removed, inspected and cleaned due to the age of these cars.
For many years, we were receiving frantic requests from customers asking for help with removing the fuel tank filter screen from their 1974 to 1989 450SL, 380SL, 500SL or 560SL (the same issue also applies to all SLC coupes). 1972 and 1973 R107s have a DIFFERENT FUEL TANK arrangement. Until rece
This kit includes a New Mercedes OEM fuel tank filter screen along with a special tool I have made to remove and install it. It will save you the time and expense of running out and buying a great big Allen wrench.

It has now become essential that you replace this filter screen on these old cars, especially if they have been using gasoline with ethanol in it and the car has sat or sits for long periods without running.
This is a very critical and very neglected filter located inside the fuel tank.
Video instructions that come free of charge with the purchase of Kent's special tool to remove 107 fuel tank screens. This video will NOT be of much help if you do not purchase the tool, but it is being offered for anyone who would like to view it regardless. Total run time:
Gasoline Model W111, W112, W113, W108. W109, W114, W115 Fuel Tank Drain and Screen Replace - On Demand Video
In this 7+ minute instructional video, you will learn how to cleanly and safely drain the fuel out of your old Benz.
In this video, Kent will show you how to safely and cleanly remove the fuel from the tank on your older Benz. You will need to drain the fuel anytime you replace the back end hoses, the tank filter screen, the fuel pump or the fuel filter.
Why would you need to remove a fuel tank? If it is heavily rusted or contaminated sometimes it is just easier to find a good used fuel tank and replace it. Trying to clean a heavily gummed up fuel tank is a real challenge.
New Mercedes o-ring as shown. Always replace this seal when removeing and cleaning your fuel tank strainer ( screen ).
If your fuel gauge stops working or is not reading accurately, many times it can be repaired by removing it from the fuel tank, taking it apart and giving it a good internal cleaning of the contact points, float shaft, and wires.
New Fuel tank sending unit o ring. If you need to remove your sending unit to test or clean, it is a good idea to replace o-ring.
Fits 116 107 123 and 126 Chassis from 1977 to 1991.
If your fuel level gauge is not reading accurately or the needle jumps around and or your car’s low fuel warning light does not comes on, it is usually a problem with the tubular sending unit in the fuel tank.
This socket is the correct size to use with our R107 Fuel Tank Screen Removal Tool ( See below:). It is a heavy-walled 27 mm black impact grade socket made in the U.S.A.
Note that this video is free of charge when you purchase our 380SL rear fuel hose replacement kit ( see related products below).
Many of these particular big V8 models are now becoming true collector cars and going up in value at a steady rate. ( especially the 560SEC and 560SL) Most of their fuel injection delivery (FID) systems are old and tired and have not been properly maintained.
All 380SL, 380SE, and 380SEL owners take note. Even if you acquire a nice 380 like Kent's Cherry you are going to need some or all of these components ( unless of course it was recently done by a competent mechanic ).
Since new original style pumps are no longer made, this is the best way to finally fix your old fuel pump leaks and poor performance. This kit is designed specifically for the W108 and W109 small V8 sedans.
We have been able to determine that most of the 500 series R107 and W126 of the early to mid 1980s have the same FID setup as the 380 engines.
This is our most complete FID kit yet. Kent wanted to make sure you would have all the parts you need including hardware.
1977 to 1980 SOME W116 R107 C107 V8 and W123 6 Cyl. Fuel Delivery Overhaul Kit with Free Video Instructions
PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE ORDERING to confirm the type of accumulator you have. ( Watch the last video below for examples )For systems with ONE HOLE ACCUMULATOR only. Some 450SL, 450SLC, 450SE, 450SEL with 4.5 and W116 280SE .
Kent uses his 1976 240D that had sat idle for 6 years to demonstrate what needs to be done to get an old fuel system cleaned out and serviced properly. This always includes installing new fuel filters and sometimes will require replacing some of the rubber hoses.
Worried about the internal condition of the fuel tank on your old 1959 to 1972 mechanical fuel-injected Mercedes? Not sure if it has rust or other contaminants inside it.
Since new original style pumps are no longer made, this is the best way to finally fix your old fuel pump leaks and poor performance.
Let's face it. These fuel tanks and now 50 years old and most are not squeaky clean inside. There is a fuel tank screen that will catch most particles if the screen is in good shape. But I have found that it will not catch the very fine rust particulates that are so common in these old cars.
Most 1988 to 1993 6 cylinder CIS fuel injection delivery (FID) systems are old and tired and have not been properly maintained. These include the W201 190E 2.6, the W124 260E 300E, 300CE, 300TE, the W126 300SE, and 300SEL, and the R129 300SL.
In this 9 minute instructional video, Kent will explain how to test your fuel accumulator to determine whether or not it has failed internally. A failed accumulator will make your engine hard to start when hot.
This is a collection of SPECIAL tools Kent has put together to help you grab, twist, and pull on things in and around your Mercedes. He makes each one of these tools right here in his shop.
These early “short style” electric fuel pumps are very prone to leaking fuel because the rubber case o-ring seals harden with age. New pumps are no longer available and rebuilt are VERY expensive! If you risk buying a used one it will probably end up leaking or seeping fuel too.
You would be amazed at how much fuel can leak out of a fuel hose when you disconnect it from your tank or engine. This is an easy way to prevent messy spills.
This inexpensive kit will allow you to replace the old hardened and brittle fuel hose in your 601 602 or 603 diesel's engine compartment as well as those old worn out factory clamps with new high quality worn gear clamps that will not cut into the rubber hose.
These fit all 123, 116, and 126 chassis 616 and 617 diesels from 1977 to 1985. This includes 4 and 5 cylinder both non turbo and turbo engines.
