Does anyone know where the fuel filter is located on this car? (Mine is a 2000 S500). I got no replies in the W220 forum so I thought I'd try here before giving up and paying the dealer $200 to install a lousy $20 filter.

to answer your question the fuel filter is located under the car by the left rear tire. there are 3 10mm plastic nuts hold on a cover and under that cover lies your lousy $125 fuel filter with built
in fuel pressure regulator. i dont suggest you reuse the hose clamps that are on there, plus they are a pain to get back on. by the way, $200 for parts and labor is not excessive.

Thanks for the info, I wound up finding it by simply following the fuel lines out of the tank!

As for the $200, that's just labor ... $220 to be exact as it's 2 hours at $110 hour ... for a 10-minute job!

And yes I did buy the lousy $120 filter from the dealer ... something about this car makes me distrust aftermarket parts.
