Sounds like you have warped brake discs, pedal starts to rise & lower underfoot as brake applied, buy new discs. Usually the front. Discs wear thin/distort with age due to heat generated when braking.
Have fun changing them.

When I apply the brake at slower speeds the pedal starts pulsating like the anti lock brake is kicking on .it doesn't do all the time but is starting to do it more frequently.

You may be at the end of the life for your brakes and or rotor / drum. If you can take it to a brake shop they usually will look at it for free.

Do you have instructions for installing a bosch fuel filter that I purchased for a 1991 bmw 525 i? Thanks so much for your consideration. david

This may or may not be helpful.
If yours does not look like this, note the comment at the top that the earlier location for fuel filters was in front of the firewall, beneath the brake master cylinder.

I just bought a 96 lasabre and it wobbles, the previous ower said something about it being caused by the brakes or rotors, please help

if you get a pulsation/vibration when you apply the brakes than the brake rotors are warped. If the pulsation/vibration can be felt as your driving without applying the brakes than some common causes could be a tire out of balance, a separated tire, or a bent wheel,

Clutch pedal drops when I apply brake, so can't change gears

I suppose your clutch master or slave cylinder is leaking. You must keep an eye on the brake flui leven and drive to a workshop for a check asap. You can use DOT3 brake fluid.

1994 BMW 525 Battery

Look on the passenger side at the firewall and fender junction.   In the attached picture, see at the lower left side.  You need to remove the black plastic battery cover about 9"x7" located there, then you'll be able to see how the battery restraint works if you need to remove.
The title says 1994 525, and this is where tha battery is for '94, probably in the same place '91, if not look for a 10"x7" plastic cover elsewhere in the engine compartment.

Even though you replaced the rotors, seems that you will still need to have them resurfaced. This assuming you are experiencing pulsation only when braking.
Hope this helps, Please remember to rate this answer.

Brake pad pulsating

Possible causes- low spot on the rotors. Caliper pins not sliding with pulsation. May not need to replace pads.
