Question about 2005 BMW X5
Its under the bonnet, Pop the bonnet, as you stand facing the engine its up high on your right, the cars left side. its found by following the black plastic air intake to a mini radiator sort of thing which is the fuel cooler. the Fuel filter is the silver, soft drink can sized thing just behind that mini radiator thing. Its clamped around by a clamp which is tightened by an Allen key/Hex head thing, which is a common size in any set you would buy from any auto store. use a Phillips head screw driver to loosen the two flexible fuel lines and disconnect them. Unclip the plastic sensor from the top of the filter with thumb and fore finger and slide the old filter up and out. Reverse to replace. When everything is redone turn the key to the on position while the pump primes the filter and check for leaks. These should be done every 3-4 oil changes. Happy motoring!
