Hereby some photos of my original filter (membran broken all around).

Logically this must be a quite common issue but i cannot find any replacement part.

Can you give me any hints to find right parts, or maybe substitutes (like the 190SL...if that is working)?

I can't say for sure.  But here is my story. . . . something to consider.
About 11 years ago, before I was keeping detailed records, I had to replace the filter on my '52 220.  The new one was a little bit longer than the original and the metal cover didn't seat all the way down.  I eventually got a taller cover and wire keeper and it worked fine.  I recall also working on one where I think I was able to modify it by simply shortening the brass tubes and pressing the now shorter tubes through the disk to retain the correct pickup height and resulting in a shorter overall height of the filter.

Dear friends,

Discovered my front fuel filter is broken and I need to find a new one...
Haven't found anything on the classic parts catalogues but the following (designed for the 190SL)

Do you know if this will fit? Into the MB 170S, 136 (from 51).

I did exactly as Thomas and got a corner broken, very hard even applied Heat.
Then got the "enough support" as Henry.
Finally The Blade out and replaced.

Applying the Heat will burned the old Rubber seal, if you plan not to save the Seal.

Thanks Thomas & Henry.

I agree with Thomas. If you had a tool that gave the impeller enough support, you probably could get it off with some heating. But then you will probably have to machine the face of the pump casting where the seal hits, as well as make a new shaft, since they often are corroded.

Hi John,

Knowing the post is an old one, but I want to share my experience from the past days.
I hade the same problem and question. Tried to look into all available docs to find out if there were any special tool intended for this. Didnt find anything and tried to separate it with force. Unfortunally I actually broke one of the corners and had to give up...
Ended up this week buying a new one from, at around 120€.
And, the new one is for sure working and looks nice. But of course not as good quality and finish as things were done 70 years ago :(

Sotaa edeltävissä vientimalleissa oli yksiosaiset puskurit. Myös minun autossa on sellaiset ollut. Samoin vain yksi takalamppu varren päässä.

Prewar export models have onepiece bumpers. Also in my car they have been. Likewise, just one rear lamp at the end of the shaft.

Pasi hei,  onko tuossa 170V:ssä todella yksiosainen puskuri vaiko pelkkä näköharha?
