ROBO JOE WILL BE HELPING ME POINT FOR THIS PROJECT
Be sure you do not do this with a full tank of gas
First disconnect the battery
Second open the fuel cap to let pressure out.
Go to the rear driver side seat
it must be removed first
the front 2 bolts are covered by a plastic cover
which can be removed with a flat head screw driver
once the covers are off you will need to remove these 2
14mm bolts at the front of the seat
There are also to bolts at the back of the seat you must remove
First lay the seat down forward.
Second get your extension with the 14mm and put it between the back of the seat and the trunk area
you will see the two bolts that need removed.
After the 4 bolts are removed holding the seat
in you will see a little flap covering the
fuel pump access which is held down by Velcro
This a cover over the fuel pump
the cover is held down by double sided sticky tape it is easily
removed by using a flat head screw driver and
prying up on it all the way around
Robo Jo is pointing to all the plugs that need disconnected
The red hose is tricky but follow the steps and it will come right off.
It may still have pressure be ready for a little fuel to come out.
After all the plugs and hoses have been disconnected you will be ready to loosen the ring that hold the fuel pump in .
First stick a flat head screw driver in the slot robo Joe is pointing to and use a hammer to turn the ring counter clock wise.
It takes some hard whacks but will come lose
remove the ring and the fuel pump is ready to come out
pull it out carefully it takes some wiggling
There will be a hose connected at the bottom remove it but don't drop it back into the gas tank it will need to be reconnected to the new fuel pump.
To put it back in, repeat the steps backwards
