Where is and how do I access the fuel filter to replace same. Have looked under car where most MBZ fuel filters are located, but I dom't see it.

I would donate but am disabled vet on social security, that is why I am fixing this myself.
Do you

*Loosen mounting screws (arrows) and remove filter.
*Unscrew fitting from old filter and attach to new filter with new seal ring.
*Install new fuel filter in flow direction with plastic sleeve.
*Sleeve should project on both sides of the holder since contact corrosion may occur if there is direct contact with the holder.
*Replace plastic sleeve, if necessary.
*Connect steel line to filter.
*Retighten mounting screws.
*Check for leaks.
