Exclamation W211 Fuel Leak

I've been doing some googling..


about 2 months ago every now and then when I would fill up I would get a small smell of fuel, inside and outside the car, but nothing visable...


Called my local dealer, no scary news, recalls etc. said they would check it at my next scheduled service, which happens frequently these days...


Today, I back out of my driveway, to see a 50 ft long 6 inch wide trail of fuel!

and apparently I'm not the only one with an issue.

NHTSA Action Number: EA13003

anyone try to DIY this?

The fuel level senders/seals are known to leak on the older 211's. You can check them easily by removing the access covers beneath the rear seat.
