In Reply to: How do I change the fuel filter on my 525? posted by Justin on November 22, 2000 at 18:29:49:

Firstly, buy yourself a Bentley's is our bible, essential ready and will save you money plus make you a better informed E34 owner!1

The filter is a piece of cake...
a. get two golf tees to stick in the rubber gas
b. new filter and two new clamps.

Back the car onto ramps, undo the filter to chassis clamp bolt, undo the two hose clamps. Remove inlet and outlet hoses and stick tee in each hose as you remove them (stops gas draining on you!

Remove rubber filter clamp gasket around old filter, clean and protect with Lexol Vinylex (or similar!!). Place gasket on new filter, ensure filter inlet/outlet is correct and installation is reverse of above ...
