Where is oil filter located on a 2006 bmw 525i


It uses a "cartridge filter" the cap to the filter is on the top side of the engine, normally towards the front. NOTE- The procedure is to remove the filter, drain the oil, replace drain plug and filter, refill with oil. Some models have a canister at the bottom towards the front. These are a little trickier as the material used for the canister are very brittle.

Location of oil filter on BMW 323i coupe '99 reg and how to fit new cartridge


Both E36 and E46 models have oil filter under the hood, towards the front of the block. You will need a special socket to remove the oil filter cap and once it's out, can replace the filter. Make sure to replace the gasket on oil filter cap, it should come in oil filter kit you bought.

Can't find oil level stick in engine compartment 2006 bmw 525i Whould you tell me where is it?


The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".

I need to change my oil and filter on a BMW 745I 2002, does anyone know how to do it.


The oil filter is located underneath the vehicle next to the drain plugand accessed through a removable trim cover. If I remember correctly the drain plug is a 7mm allen. The oil filter has a drain plug in it to predrain before removing the filter cap. I do not recommend removing the plug because it strips out sometimes. Instead you need to use a socket and loosen the cap slowly. Your engine will take 8qts bmw syn 5w30 oil. I like the factory oil because it is proven extended life oil. When reinstalling the drain plug make sure to replace the crush washer. Also, make sure to replace the oring on the oil filter cap and lube before reinstalling.
