CRD fuel filter leaking

I just replaced my fuel filter and I can't get it to stop leaking. Any suggestions?

Reinstall the hoses. Reclamp. If still leaking, try new clamp.

is it an aftermarket fuel filter? or is it a mercedes brand fuel filter?

throw it away if its aftermarket and purchase a mercedes brand fuel filter.

MB filters are typically just rebranded, so are you saying MANN, WIX, or ??
