I recently replaced the horribly buzzy fuel pump--which I think was the
original--in my '91 200q. It did not have an integral filter--just the
detachable filter basket below, which happened to be as clean as a whistle.
The replacement Bosch pump is the thinner, newer style pump and has a small
integral filter (about 5/8" dia). Considering the cleanliness of the tank,
I left all filters in place.

There's nothing quite as quiet as a _really_ quiet fuel pump! (repeat three

I hope it lasts.
