On 2001 Navigator, how does one replace the air pump at home
I have bought the air pump for the 2001 Nav and want to install it myself. The pump quit working yesterday, I purchased the part but don't have a tech manual to direct me. Since it deals with the air suspension I don't want to damage anything else while I'm R&R the pump.

The air bags commonly go bad on these trucks as well as the Expeditions. They are called Air Springs. I sell better quality ones than those sold at auto part stores and they are also a bit cheaper than dealer parts. But either way the problem is you have bad air springs.
Fuel Pump ModuleRemoval & InstallationTo Remove: WARNING Highly flammable mixtures are always present in any fuel related component. Smoking or carrying lighted tobacco or an open flame of any type may ignite the flammable mixtures. WARNING Even when the engine is not running, fuel in the fuel system remains under high pressure. Fuel system pressure must be relieved before working on or disconnecting any of the fuel lines, fuel tubes, or fuel system components. Failure to do so may result in accidental spraying of fuel, personal injury, or a fire hazard.
If you getting a lean code you may want to start by changing the fuel filter. I'm not that familiar with the Navigator but, If you look at the coil pack they have them numbered. The right front (passenger side) cylinder is number "1" it's 1 2 3 down right side and 4 5 6 on the drivers side, that's for a V-6. A V-8 is the same except 1 2 3 4 and 5 6 7 8.
Remove battery, remove windshield washer bottle, remove air compressor and disconnect both air lines from the compressor dryer. Make sure compressor electrical wiring is plugged in, install battery, turn suspension switch to ON, turn ignition switch to the ON position, close all door and the compressor should come on and completely lower the whole truck. Once the truck is completely down, turn the ignition OFF, remove battery and connect both air lines. Install battery ensure electrical wiring is plugged in, turn ignition switch to ON, the compressor should come on and raise the vehicle to the correct ride height.
