1. under the driver seat, there is a cover, unscrew all the bolts, about 20 plus i think
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.

Bimmer360,
I am about to replace my fuel filter on 01' 3.0 X5. According to this picture of Darek, which clamps that need to be replaced do you refer to on step 4? I look in the Bently manual and they did not mention anything about replacing clamps. Thanks much for your help.

Justin.

I had to remove number one and six in the diagram to access the fuel filter.
