Yes, later e36 is way easier the fuel filter is just underbody, remove #18 fuse and crank few time to make sure fuel is not getting from gas tank anymore then disconnect battary...then you can remove fuel filter...but if you never done it before let someone do it for you once and you can watch and learn then next time you can do it by yourself..

thanks!

but i think i'll do it myself and learn as i go. i think the best way to learn is to try and make some mistakes to learn from. well, not in ALL cases... like, i wouldnt pull out my transmission by myself or something like that. but a fuel filter should be fine.

good good, just watch out for gas don't let it spray on your face or eyes ...and disconnect you battary... good luck! although replaced fuel filter doesn't solve my jerking problem..

btw, if you living in North York area, go buy the fuel filter from PTM(Keele&Steeles) i bought it for $21 and it's OEM

hahaha...3.5 hours to change the filter ..the cover is actually attached to the engine ..and the best way to do it is to loosen the top clamp underneath the intake manifold ..and push it down from the top and then pull it from the bottom ..its a little tight but its the quickest way

p.s u might want to clamp the hose and have a bucket ready for the extra fuel in the filter

i was just as dazzled untill i pulled out my 325 motor

what a coincidence... i buy all my OEM disposable parts there... like air filter, oil filter, etc.

i also happen to work right across the street from there...
