Why does BMW make things so complicated and for what purpose ?
Changing the fuel filter on a VAG diesel takes about 20 mins and the hardest part in the whole process is opening the bonnet. Although my BMW is great to drive and the 6 pot is so sublime, I think my previous VAG cars where of better design in many ways; the fuel filter being an example.

Garage List
2009 BMW 335d  [4.00]
Guys are there two different fuel filters out there for the 335d? I know it's the same part number (13327793672) but there might be a difference based on build date. I own a 2009 BMW 335d and I see my Mann Filter have a "WK 5001" on it while I've seen others with a "WK 519" on them.

Can anyone help clear this up?

Thanks.

Do You have to get a new fuel pipe retaining clip seperately or does it come with the new filter?

Just in case anyone has trouble finding where it is, hopefully this image link helps

The under tray is located is more central that other guides had suggested so on the passenger side of a right hand drive its the second section of under tray that you need to remove.

I've tried many times to buy a fuel filter for my petrol E90 but it seems that I always find the part for the diesel models. even if you check in eurocarparts one ll see that they don't supply this specific spare part for the petrol editions. does anyone know the reason? thanks

Because they don't have one.

thanks Kris for your answer. but how it is possible not to have one? do you mean that they don't have one that is replaceable? cause I know that in some cars the fuel filter is not replaceable since it is located inside the fuel tank of the vehicle...

That's right Terry there's a strainer filter in the pump unit on all modern petrols.the last petrol filter on the bmw's was on the e46.Should never have to be replaced anyway or I'm certainly not aware of it anyway!
