As before there is no requirement to bleed the fuel system. After replacing the fuel filter, switch on the ignition and wait for about a minute. The system will automatically bleed itself.

Want to be on the safe side? attach a fuel pressure guage to the schrader valve and let gasoline exit the vent tube. It can save you a headache if the fuel system does not bleed itself properly. Air locked in the system causes starting problems and mechanics start gue$$ing with your money!

SOURCE: bmw 530d how to change fuel filter

You do not need to bleed it it just unscrews as it is a spin on type whichh is on the R/H side of the engine near the Wing and easy to see as you will also see the inlet fuel lines to it.
Just unscrew it slowly then carefully lift it out, not dropping any fuel. You do not need to fill the new Filter up with Fuel, just oil the outer large ring rubber gasket and the inner little one before placing the new one on. Just switch on the ignition to prime it for a few seconds and then start the car. It should stall on the 1st go or 2 but then will be ok. Just check for leaks and job done!!

How to bleed the fuel system


1. Open the hood of the vehicle and locate the fuel pump; it is usually found between the fuel tank and the first fuel filter. Locate the manual primer on the pump. The manual primer can take the form of a lever or a plunger. 2Open the bleed plug on the fuel filter closest to the fuel tank. See the vehicle's owner's manual for the exact location of the bleed plug.3Open the fuel supply valve to allow fuel to flow from the pump to the filter. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bmw 530d cranks over for 30 seconds before firing up, hot or cold


Try turning the ignition on (not to turn the engine over but only on) for 5 seconds and then off then repeat that three or four times then try and start it. If it starts up immediately after that then you have a fuel pressure problem and by doing this you are priming up the high pressure fuel rail. possible causes are a fuel filter blockage, if you dont know the history of the fuel filter then replace it, or could be a pump issue or a pressure regulator on the rail issue.

if your filter has not been changed in a while and the quality of your fuel in your state is not that good I'll advice a fuel pump replacement , and before you do that if you have access to the pressure tester ,test if pressure is optimum.
