Take a large Long Pointy punch and place on the edge of the pump and with a good size hammer give a good blow to crack the pump in half, then pull out the peices.

How do i change oil filter and fuel filter on a bmw 318 ti compact 1997

The oil filter should be in a housing with a plastic top with a big hex shape on top. You remove it with a 36mm wrench or socket.
Then you remove the O-ring from the cover and replace it with a freshly oiled up new O-ring from the filter package. Pull out the old filter and press in the new one. Screw the cover back down. No need to overtighten. The O-ring is the seal.
Instructions for replacing the fuel filter are here:

1998 bmw overheating at times has had the waterpump

This is typical of BMW 318 and others I suppose.
If after changing the radiator, the hoses, the water pump then the other cause is leakage of coolant at the back of the engine block.

This is hidden but there is a hard plastic outlet which gives away after 5 or more years. If the leakage is serious you can notice the coolant disappearing very fast.

Worse it could be the gasket leaking.

How to remove water pump from bmw 318 1995. I have all the bolts off and it still won't come off

Tap it lightly with a soft faced mallet to break the seal that it shares with the engine. If this doesn't work, use and inspection mirror to see if you've missed a bolt along the bottom that you could not see.
