1991 190e 2.6 fuel filter replacement

I replaced the fuel filter in my car and am leaking gas from the resevor closest to the back tire and the little filter in front of my big filter. i picked my filter up from NAPA, i dont know if that has something to do with it or what. if anyone can help with this i would much appreciate it.

i dont have a picture of it. but the lines that run from the resevor into the filter that has the banjo bolt and then into another filter, and the back resevor is the one that is leaking. i was told since i moved that line, the one that runs from the resevor to the filter to the other smaller filter and has the banjo bolt in it, that back resevor is the one that is leaking and i am just going to replace all the copper washers on the entire system

Always always always use new copper gaskets when working with the fuel system.

How is the supply line, rust? Mine was totally shot on my 93. Rusted solid.

ya i replaced the copper washers on the entire fuel line and the leak stopped. I have never worked on a mercedes before so i had no clue. its my girlfriends car so i figured i would do the work myself thinking oh fuel filter easy job. but no the fuel line wasnt rusted or anything, looked brand new. the filter was clogged to shit though. the thing weighed like ten pounds. but it runs way better now. thanks for getting back to me so fast
