Anybody Done This?? Fuel Line

Can anyone tell me the best way to replace the short steel fuel line that runs from the fuel bowl to the head on an E99? What needs to be moved out of the way first if anything? I have that pin hole thing going on and limited time to fix in order to get back to work.... Is the pre bent fuel line a Dealer part only??? Please help, thanks

There really is no right or wrong way, it is a matter of looking at it and seeing what is in the way and if it an easy removal or a complicated extensive removal. you can order a pre-bent pipe from the dealer, I would be surprised if they had one in stock. You can remove the old one and take it to a local shop to have one bent and flared. etc.. You will also have to replace the square washers, using the old ones will result in failure.
