1991 BMW 318i Q&A

1991 BMW 318i Question: do I have to replace the whole fule pump to replace the filter sock?

My fule filter was blocked so I replaced it. The car still did not start so I pulled out the fule pump and tested it and it ran but the sock was bad. -
Answer 1
If you give me the last seven digits of the VIN# I can check in the parts catalog if the sock available separately, I can give you the part# also if available. Zee -

I really need only the last 7 digits. The one you gave me is incorrect - that's the message I got when enter it into the OE BMW catalogue. Could you recheck it please? Zee -

Unfortunately it comes as an assembly, the sock filter is not available separately. Zee -
Answer 2
if the filter is new I'd change out the pump and the sock, so that way you save yourself costly repairs down the line best to do these as a one shot fix -
