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!!

I have a 530D BMW 2005 model, I found that the diesel is mixing with the oil and giving off massive amount of white smoke. The diagnostic report showed glow plug cylinder 5 and 6. We did the service a

I am not to sure what u are asking here but I would say u need 2 glow plugs . I would be checking the dpf filter as that gives off a light colour smoke when trying to regen and if it can't regen that is where the fuel is getting in oil , modern diesels need to have long runs quite oftern driving around town blocks up dpf in the exhaust the car try's to regen using extra fuel to get it up to temp to burn off the soot inside it prob not running long enough to do it. If u got good diagnostic gear u can preform a regen stationary hope this helps

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.

I have a 2001 BMW 530d, last Saturday it would not start first thing in the morning after searching forums i decided to replace the cam shaft sensor, replaced it Tuesday, it started first time, today it...

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.

My 2002 bmw 530d turns over but refuses to start. fuel pump is working ok and fuel is exiting ok from filter to engine.

First, just because ther is fuel present, doesn't mean that there is enough fuel pressure present to fire your injectors. The fuel pressure specification on an M54 Engine is Bar 3.5 at a delivery rate of 2.25 Liters Per Minute. (or in U.S. terms, 51 PSI at 0.6 Gallons Per Minute) This must be measured with a gauge to make sure it is correct before determining if there is enough fuel, or is the fuel pump is working properly.

Second, did you check for spark at the spark plugs?
