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: CRANK SENSOR ON E39 530D
The crank sensor is located on the driver's side of the block where it meets the transmission. It is a few inches below the starter. It is held in place with a 5mm allen bolt.

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!!
