1. under the driver seat, there is a cover, unscrew all the bolts,approx 20+
2. Remove fuel fuse and start engine, make sure it dies (means out of fuel flow)
3. Replace filter.
4. You will need a new clamp for the 2 hoses attached to the filter, the ones you have are not reusable.

My BMW x5 keeps stalling it's a 2001! Any ideas as to why?

A few things you could look at that would contribute to your X5 stalling would be:
1. Air Filter
2.Fuel Filter
3.Mas air flow sensor and associated pipework (leaks/ come addrift)
4.Vaccumm leaks (pipes and engine)
5.Spark plugs (lots of pictures on-line of different types of build up/fouling on them and fixes)
7.o2 sensor located on the exhaust
6.Failing all the above the fault can be read at most garages by a fault reader and that should if not defiantly point the fault out.

The oil pressure sensor on the 4.4 V8 is located below the oil filter on the housing. the oil filter is located near the coolant tank on the left hand side, it is a hard plastic lid screwed into an alloy housing.

Hello wheres the flue filteron the bmw x5


The fuel filter is the silver can thing that is behind the mini radiator which is a fuel cooler.
The fuel filter is a round soft drink can size unit.

To locate it, look for the main black plastic air inlet thing leading to the top left of engine bay which is on your right hand side as you face the engine. It leads to a mini radiator looking thing which is a fuel cooler. Right behind that you will see your fuel filter.

Take care and good luck
