Pull the rear seat, and the access panel that covers the fuel tank bung on the passenger side. Take a look there with the car running. Look to see if the plastic stand pipes coming out of the cover piece are leaking. IIRC This only involves a phillips head screw driver to investigate, granted this is a 3er you're talking about.

I believe they don't have a deadline. Check with your dealership to be certain though.

PS - If you're driving an E36, the pump is accessed from under the rear seat. See: http://www.frankies-bmw.com/3series/...uel_sender.php
