    Hi All

    Can't start the car today. 1997 e300 td elegance estate.

    Noticed dripping fuel after trying to start the car.

    As you look at the fuel filter from above and left, thier is a pipe that looks like it has a slideing clip rather than a bolt to hold it on.

    Three pipes at the top and the one dripping is lower down and to the left.

    Could this be my problem with car not starting?

    Will it continue to drip fuel or settle down, I would rather try and catch it in a container if is going to carry on and bleed me car dry.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.
