528e fuel filter?

Where is the location of the fuel filter? I bought a new one but can't find it on the car where I expected it to be.

My car is sudddenly running sluggish so I suspect the filter.

The filter is under the car above the right side of the differential. A good idea is to remove the fuel pump relay with the engine running so as to use the fuel in order to minimize the fuel spray. Check the hoses which due to age might be brittle. If you need to replace them, they are 8-mm high pressure (or fuel injection hose).

Take the rear passenger side wheel off and you can access it.
