Just want to add one more thing. My friend who had an unrelated engine issue on his MB, which required the MB mechanic to remove and replace the air intake tube from the turbo, discovered after, that even MB didn't think enough to change it out. The issue with this part is material fatigue. So, if you think a MB mechanic is any better, think again. It's very dealer specific, as to if the guy is knowing and skilled or not.

The swap out of that part, during your fuel filter maintenance, takes all of 30 seconds. So buy a new one and eliminate any issues down the road. For those who don't feel their mechanical skills fit the bill on this service, just be informed is all I can recommend.

That is interesting that MB would not formally document the issue to help JLesing with his claim. Silence on the issue speaks volumes. What puzzles me is most who think MB, think their premo. To a degree they are. But, ponder this, what do Germans buy at home, chevys, fords, nope. So, perception can be puzzling sometimes.

[/QUOTE]"Also, be sure to replace the "compensating ring" which is the orange colored ring that slips over the intake tube of the turbo.

Anybody have the part number for the "compensating ring?"

This is the MB part number for the compensating ring for a chassis 475371 and later.
A 000 094 00 51. My 2013 falls in that chassis sequence.

Sprinter Fuel Filter Replacement, Compensating Ring issue

Attached should be the service bulletin on this issue given to me by Freightliner ATC Oklahoma City (who were GREAT at getting us fixed and back on the road, and supporting my claim against the Ford dealer).
Believe the Compensating Ring is identified as #175 in the drawing; no part # given.

When I was assigned in West Germany in the mid-80's I discovered the proper way to pronounce Mercedes-Benz in German is "Taxi"! All my German neighbors wanted to ride in my Chevy Celebrity station wagon...

I had posted the part number for the 5 pin fuel filter earlier. Here is the 3 pin filter part number. Verify the filter looks like the one in the included image.
A 642 092 04 01

Is the Mahle Fuel Filter KL 490D a replacement for the 3 pin filter (A 642 092 04 01)?
