Hi, I've ordered a new Mann fuel filter which should be here soon. Does anyone know how I'm going to remove the clamps, I'd l ideally like to reuse them. Cheers

They are called Clic-r clamps , you can get a cheap tool off eBay buddy , the two clamps are also slightly different sizes

Are these not single use? I'm about to change my fuel filter for the first time and plan to change the clic-r clamps for easier to work with hose clamps.

The sizes you need (clic-r or other)
13.5mm & 15mm

Humm, could I temporarily use jubilee clips if I break them, to tide me over before I get some more assuming the worst?

Plus, what are the symptoms of a clogged filter, I'm doing it as it's been there for 43,000 miles and I thought it wise? Cheers

IMO not worth changing until necessary - ie. starvation or water ingress. Just carry a spare on trips.
I'm not sure, surely as it reaches the end of it's life loading of the tank pump is increased?

You can pop the clips open with a small flat screwdriver, the tool you have ordered is handy for reclosing them. If you damage them jubilee clips will do the same job. You probably dont need to with the electric fuel pump but i like to fill the filter with diesel to ease the starting procedure. I use an empty lucozade sport bottle to squeeze the diesel into until it runs out the other pipe.

I've used jubilee clips on 3 MBS without problems. Cycle the ign 3 times for 20 seconds to prime the new filter.

You won’t break them , I have reused mine a couple of times , yes change the filter at that mileage . MB parts sell them for a couple of quid each , so easy to get

If you replace with jubilee clips make sure you use decent quality ones like Mikalor clamps.

I've not done this yet as I've not used the car and have been lazy. However, I've just thought I should probably change the air filters at the same time. I can get the genuine Merc ones for £42, or the Mann versions for £30. Is there any difference, I'm not keen on spending £12 just to get Mercedes printed on them! Thanks

Actually just got them from cp4less for £26 which is pretty decent. So oil, fuel and air filters. What else is in the B service scope? Probably brake fluid I suppose, annoying SBC.
