Fuel supply X5 diesel

Customer Question

I have a problem with my BMW X5 diesel 2001, I cant get a proper flow of diesel to the fuel filter even after fitting a new pump ???? Any ideas , Could it be the valve arrangement in the saddle tank ????? Does this vehicle have a inline pump as well as the one in the Tank, There is one listed in the parts list but I cant find it on the car??? Plenty of fuel pumping out of the pipe that leaves the secondary sender unit and goes forward to the fuel filter. I presume this is the feed?? Dont know what else to try .Thanks ... Graham XXXX
