Thanks again Mike Tangas and RPM55,
I started the car and looked at the pump. You could see fuel immediately running down that tube from the first pump, while the rest of the metal tubing seems to stay dry. You can actually see a droplet forming on the tube on my picture nr. 2. There is no spray, just the drip at probably 1 every 10 seconds.
As per the CD, you can remove the whole assembly by blocking the fuel suction and delivery hoses with that special clamp MB has and then move the whole thing out. It doesn't seem to be attached to anything else. Is that the easiest way to change the filter and the 8 crush washers? Or is it easier to take it apart right at the car?
Thanks again for your help.
