    Had an MoT advisory note in October for my '91 CLK 230K, "slight corrosion on fuel pipes".
    Smelt petrol when parking the car so,checked underneath and the line going over the rear axle was so badly rusted the the petrol was spurting out.
    Local indy can't do the job as the parts are Mercedes only so a hefty bill from Merc dealer expected.:(

    Your Mercedes:
    C43/55 AMG 1999 / C230K 1997
    Could you not just cut the rotten pipe out and replace it with a length of petrol hose, if required use a couple of cable ties to secure it.
