Petrol Tank Replacement - W169 A150 2005 Facelift

Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum so thanks for having me here.

I was wondering if you had any advice on replacing the petrol tank on an A150 W169 2005 model facelift version? The current petrol tank is so bad that you can poke holes through it with your fingers. I already have a good condition replacement tank. I've got the car on an axle stand at the moment just to have a look, and everything is covered in plastic. I'll need to get the plastic off and perhaps some suspension components to get the tank out.

It seems that haynes only did a w168 manual, and was wanting to check if you guys knew if there was much difference between the w168 and w169 for changing the petrol tank?

Many thanks for your help!

Hi and welcome!

First of all - your A150 is not a facelift, the W169 facelift came out in late 2008.

Yes, you're right - unfortunately Haynes never did a manual for W169 / C169 or W245, so the only source is Mercedes own WIS (workshop info system).

Here's a couple of files for you

Hi Chode McBlob,

Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to attach those files for me. I didn't expect a reply so quickly on the petrol tank change.

Unfortunately the A150 is still sitting with 3 wheels and axle stand on the driveway, as I had a bunch of work deadlines that came up over the christmas period. I also was given the car in a terrible mess of an interior, so had to remove the back seats to clean up. My own car has decided to to have multiple issues to come up too that needed fixed so had to focus on that for the MOT coming up. As I'm sorting this as a favour and my sister got another car now, I am getting my car through its MOT first. Then get the A150 sorted and gone asap.

The job doesn't look too bad from the manual you linked, which has been a great help.

I will follow up with a write up of how I get on with it and possibly take pictures if its of any help to others on here doing the same job.

Thanks again for your help!

Cool. It would be interesting to read a write up on the actual process, as I might have to do that in a few years too.

As to the interior - I've done a few mods on mine, will be happy to share.

I also have a top centre console (under armrest) trim available (I bought a new one and had it carbon dipped), came from a 30k car and is like new - 25 delivered. PM me if you're interested
