SOURCE: 1993 bmw 525i fuel pump

Hi, your fuel pump is located in the trunk underneath an access cover on the passenger side. remove the screws on the cover and you will see the in tank pump and sending unit. when replacing your pump, make sure to note the position of the 2 fuel hoses so you don't accidentally cross them when putting in the new pump.

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter for a 94-525i bmw?

i thought it was near the sending unit after it exits the tank. should be mounted sideways, but may be ubstructed (for protection from debris) from plain view. can you follow the 2 fuel lines (on the LH side) from the engine and head backwards? one will lead into the filter.

You should try removing the spark plugs and going over the end with some sandpaper. The problem may be something else completely, but sometimes the ends get a little dull and they don't 'spark' as well as they should. Be careful though - only remove them if you have a torque and you can tighten them up again at the required torque setting.

if you are facing this only under cold condition please do say it . i will say whats the problem there.

Verify the wires that run to the trunk, after many opeing and closing the wires wear, you may have short. There are many post in some BMW club forums.

95 bmw 525i no dash lights no tach no tremp gauge and fuel gauge pegged way past full

Why was the battery missing to begin with? I would start by checking all fuses under dash and Central hub. Check for burned in-line fuses,if any, coming off of battery cables.

Need location of fuel pump on a 1992 BMW 525i straight six engine

The fuel pump is located under the back seat on the passenger side. You will find an access cover and will need to remove the screws. You should be able to listen for the pump while someone cranks the car. Also I believe there is a large green w/ blue trace wire and an equally large brown wire at the connector. Check for battery voltage across the two wires. The fuse for the pump should be in the fuse panel under the hood.
