    I'm thinking about doing this shortly as it looks easy (thanks to one of the excellent guides on this forum!) however is there any de-pressurising of the fuel system required before changing the fuel filter?

    I only ask as I remember something about this when I used to have an E30 and am unsure if it's different for a diesel so please excuse my ignorance!

    Thanks

    I'm just a lottery win away from that 335i.........and a Series 3 Discovery..........and an old Mini.........and an E30 325i........

    No, no depressurising required. If you are worried about any small spills you can lightly clamp the rubber pipes before detaching old filter, I did not bother, just put something absorbant down to catch the dribbles. I would have the new one to hand with the arrow point in correct direction so you can replace quickly for less mess.
