Question about BMW 318
There is a cilinder located at the front of the motor with one bolt on top in the very middle. just losen that bolt and pull the top off and the oil filter is just inside.
when you raplace it dont over tighten or you could break the cap.
The oil filter is on top of the engine driver side, a little more toward the center of the engine, under a 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" hard plastic or metal cannister(black). The cannister has a dome shaped top. Must use oil filter wrench to remove/install.
This is how the oil filter cap looks in your car :-- check fig:--
its BMW : 318i / 318i Convertible / 318is / 318ti / Z3 1.9
And this is the wrench which you will require to loosen this filter cap.
Cup design allows easy filter removal and installation from the end of the filter, even in tight locations. Use with 3/8" square drive. Fits 76mm Filters with 14 Flutes.

In case if the oil filter screw cap is not getting loose.Then spray wd-40 on the sides of the cap and let it remain for 1 hour.Then try again.If still very tight .Then spray it again but bit more quantity .Then check again after some time.It will get loose.The very last option is to cut the oil filter cap with the hexo blade.The pull the remaining with a plier.
But the spray will help.
