Is this specifically for the OM651 4cyl engine? Or 6cyl? Or all engines?

I guess that partially explains the $500 fuel filter service referenced earlier in the thread.

EDIT: documents I found in searches seem to indicate this is only applicable to the OM642 engine.

Be careful, a broken hip can be a life-threatening injury, mortality rates are high for the ELDERLY. My 60-year old buddy thought he was going to be cool and jump over a railroad tie on his new mountain bike. Instant FACEPLANT and three broken ribs. It was quite comical really. I still laugh about it but, he fails to find it humorous. I guess because it hurts to laugh?

I believe it applies to any time the turbo intake hose is "disturbed" on whatever engine the work is performed on.

It is NOT included in any dealer fuel filter exchamge with any of the dealers I have queried. In fact they (service writers) seem not to even know about it. It may be the techs are doing it and the service writers don't know.

Anybody out there recently had a fuel filter replaced by the dealer? Check your invoice. Is there a parts charge for a seal? Let us know. This forum is actually the only way we seem to learn about our rigs.

Another heads up: I just received by email a voucher from the local MB dealer (Rocklin, CA) for $150 off any service or maintenance over $300. These vouchers are funded by MB USA but may only be available to those that have had service or maintenance done by a dealer, hence the notification from a specific dealer.

It is odd. I have had all service done at the dealer, and still have yet to see one of these coupons. Must be targeted marketing with more subtle parameters. Their marketing firm knows everything about us, so who knows what they are looking at?
