Hello, can you help me please find the fuel filter on BMW F10 (528i)? We found the diesel one, but this is getting tricky. Please help so I can replace the thing. Thanks!

Hello, I am Danny.

Unfortunately, the fuel filter on your vehicle is non serviceable. It is a part of the fuel pump assembly which is located inside the fuel tank. Hope this helps and feel free to ask any further questions if needed. Thanks for using 2CarPros.

The filter sock is a part of the fuel pump itself and is not considered a serviceable part without replacing the pump module. You might be able to buy just the filter through a dealer but I do not see an individual part number for it, just the number for the complete module.

Replacement involves using the pump to draw out enough fuel to be sure it is lower than the pump or driving it until the tank is 1/2 or less. Next remove the rear seat then fold back the trim and remove the access cover. Then you need the special tool to remove the pump retainer. Once you disconnect the fuel lines and wiring you can remove the module. Then you can access the filter.
Replace it and reverse the process.
