Fuel gauge not working

I have a 2005 C230 Kompressor, this morning I put gas in my car, the guage went up to halfway, then about 10 minutes later as I was driving on the freeway the needle went all the way down only the light indicator did not come on? When I stopped and restarted the car the needle would start to go up and then drop down again.

I know someone else had this problem and theirs starting working again however I would like to know if it is a fuse or something else and what it may cost for me to get it fixed.

A bouncing needle is probably the sensor. It's just a wiper inside the tank and can go bad. The part shouldn't be expensive but I believe you need a special tool (spanner) to get to it.
