Changed fuel filter car now won't start!

Pre supply pump running but not pumping up fuel to filter, with inlet pipe off just get an occasional dribble of fuel, does not seem to be much pressure.

Anyone had similar?

Really frustrating was running perfect until changing filter!!!:mad

I read a post somewhere which stated that after a f.f. change, an air lock may develope, and this should clear if you hold the ignition on for 20 secs. or so. (This was in relation to an E60 by the way).
