    The fuel pump is part of the fuel sender assembly located inside the fuel tank.
    1. Release the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Drain the fuel tank, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
    4. Clean the area surrounding the sender assembly to prevent contamination of the fuel system.
    5. To remove the fuel sender from the tank, remove the fuel sender assembly nuts and retaining ring. Carefully remove the sending unit from the fuel tank. Discard the O-rings.
