210 fuel sender removal

How do you access the fuel sender on a 99 E430. My tank got overfilled at the gas station and I've now gone 200 miles and the gauge has only dropped to 3/4! BTW could anything else have been damaged, the car normally takes $65 to fill, I was expecting $75 as it was really empty and gas has gone up in price, it took $85 before it tripped off. When I removed the filler it blew a good gallon or so back at me.

Thanks for any information,

it is behind the carpeted cover in the rear of the trunk, you must remove the panel to gain acess. there is a special tool required to remove the unit, but i usually use a 90 degree angle needle nose plier set

fuel gauge

Having the same issues with my fuel gauge on a 99 e320. But I get a different kind of reading, with a full tank of gas, needle hovers between 1/2 and 1/4.
Will replacing the sender fix the problem ? Or could it also possibly be a Gauge/Cluster issue?

Thanks much.
