I'd like to replace the fuel filter in my '98 916, and according to this thread, I can use an OEM BMW filter that is identical to the one that my local Ducati dealer wants $70 for. Does anyone know what the part number is?

The Napa 3020 will work, but it doesn't quite fit properly. I'm okay paying a bit more for the correct diameter/flow filter.

Whoa:

http://www.ducatisti.co.uk/forum/technical-help/21552-alternatives-genuine-ducati-parts.html

They list the Mahle KL 24/1 for the 916, but say it's also longer?

The KL 145 is mentioned in the further posts, I'd just like to be sure I'm getting the right part.
KL145 is identical to the Ducati part.

I replaced a Ducati filter that had been fitted at a dealer service, it was branded Ducati and also Mahle who manufacture them for Ducati, I replaced it with the KL145 it was exactly the same part.

I don't know what a KL24/1 is.

According to the thread I posted, the Napa 3020 has a smaller diameter, and requires some kind of spacer to be held in place. I've never tried it myself.

Hmm, I have one in my tank right now that didn't have any issues fitting.
Here's the description from Desmotimes Manual:
"The $3.50 NAPA filter is one-quarter of the price of the OEM unit, and has similar performance characteristics. They are available from Desmo Times. I use them by the dozen in my shop. The outer diameter of the NAPA filter is smaller than the OEM, but the lip in the center approximates the OEM filter. Simply put the lip between the plastic retainer band and snug it down."

So there you have it.

I couldn't find a fuel filter DIY writeup, so I rolled my own:

You stated in your procedure: “You will probably need to do some prying to get the assembly out, as it is held tight by a green gasket ring.”

You don’t need to pry on the flange to get the assembly out of the tank. (I can see where a screwdriver scratch the paint :eek:). The 3 threaded holes in between the retaining slot holes on the flange can be used with the 3 bolts removed to wedge the assembly out of the tank.

Also, when you’re ready (or when it cracks and starts leaking), I have an aluminum nut available to replace that plastic one holding your low fuel level sensor in.. Just an FYI is all. I'm sure you've already seen it.. :D
