Rusted steel hardines - HELP

2121 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Noodles
My son has a 98 ML320 that was given to him by a friend. The steel fuel lines going to the rear of the vehicle are both badly rusted and have leaks in several spots. We want to get them both replaced to be on the safe side . I've done some research online and here on the forums. From what I've found each line just be around $85 and already prefabricated to fit into the vehicle.

My question is....where would be the best place to purchase the parts from and then how long should it take for such a repair? I've called around and am getting varied costs. I just want to know what's involved so that I can be educated to make the right choice.

Thanks all!!

Noodles is correct. The fuel lines are plastic and the brake lines are metal.

You have to get them directly from a dealer.

I saw a post that Noodles had posted some time ago about getting them from the dealership and being able to get free shipping? Noodles? do you still have that information?
And where is that post?

You are not remotely located that you couldn't pick them up yourself.

If you want someone to mail them to you (if they decide to do that) the packaging (6' box) and mailing expense really isn't worth it on both ends.
