How to remove fuel level sender??

2184 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  cdvyas
Hi, my e430 fuel level sender is weird, it keeps fluctuating around, the gas always shows a little lower than there actually is in the tank and to make it show the correct level, I have to go in the back seat and start jumping around so it goes back up, as soon as I stop doing that, it will start fluctuating again. Is it faulty or does it just need cleaning? Pls tell me on how to remove it without any special tool! Thanks.

You will need "Some" type of Pin-Wrench. Plus, you will need to Torque the Level Sensor upon Re-Install...

Here is a cheap-o Fleabay version: On Sale Fuel Tank Lid Wrench Tool for Mercedes W210 | eBay
Sorry... Mea Culpa....

I was mixing up the W210 and my W140... t

The W210 does NOT require a specific Torque value on Re-Install.
