380SL Fuel Leak

Hello I'm a novice 1983 380sl owner. I have a fuel leak while the engine is running. It seems to be dripping off the back side of the engine on the passenger side. I can see it dripping, about one drip per second. Worst case scenario? Just got ripped off by a local mechanic (long story) and am on a learning curve. Thanks for your patience.

What is your location? You can go to the recommended repair shops forum and find someone more trustworthy to work on your car.

Proceed to the R107 forum, also check the rearmost injector on the passenger side.
