Hi There,

Here's a step-by-step from some great guys over at
for an AAZ (which I'm assuming you have)

It's pretty involved, and some special tools are needed. I've seen kits for sale

SOURCE: Are any special tools required or any special

These cars usually have disk brakes in the back. You need a caliper piston rotator tool, this tool fits into the caliper piston and you must turn it in to retract the piston, it fits onto a 3/8 " drive socket wrench. Npa sell a universal one for like $15.00 - $20.00.

SOURCE: need to locate fuel pump on 96 jetta

1996 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI 4cyl

On a Digifant fuel system, the fuel pump is mounted in a reservoir under the rear of the vehicle. The fuel filter is also in this area. The reservoir holds one liter of fuel and is supplied by a small transfer pump in the tank. The transfer pump can be replaced separately even though they are installed and removed as a unit.

The Motronic system uses two fuel pumps. The first is a small transfer pump to get the fuel out of the tank and the second boosts the fuel pressure to the necessary amount. The transfer pump is located inside the tank and the main pressure pump can be found under the vehicle. This transfer pump is located under the rear seat and is part of the fuel gauge sending unit. The main fuel pump can be found in the reservoir in front of the rear axle beam. There is a check valve inside this pump to maintain pressure in the lines, especially on hot days, to avoid vapor lock. The fuel filter is mounted to the side of the reservoir. This filter has no specified replacement interval and should be good for the entire service life of the vehicle. Whenever the ignition key is in the on position, the pump should run for at least two (2) seconds to pressurize the fuel lines. If the Engine Control Unit (ECM) does not see a signal from the Hall Effect sensor in the distributor it will shut the pump off. If a Hall Effect signal is present, the pump will continue to run as long as a signal is detected. It is this Hall Effect signal that signals the ECM that the engine is rotating therefore indicating that fuel is needed. The pump is operated via a relay that is controlled by the ECM. This relay is located in the vehicles fuse panel. The main contacts of the relay can be jumped to run the pump during testing.

Good luck (rated this help).

Any other tool? You have to drop the gas tank, there are special fuel line clamp tools that you need, you should have the tool to remove the fuel tank pump cover too.

Remove fuel pump from 1999 jetta

It's on top of the fuel tank so fold the rear seat bottom out of the way,pull back the floor cover and remove the panel covering the top of the tank. The fuel delivery assembly is removed as a unit. First remove the electrical connectors and fuel lines. Cover the fuel lines with a cloth as pressure will let some fuel spurt out of the line. Remove the retaining ring. VW has a special tool for this but you can make something that will work. Lift the unit out of the tank. Some units ( 2.0 BBW ) have the retaining ring bolted and the nuts have to removed to get the unit loose.

I need to replace the fuel pump. Dealer wants $1100. Can get new OE part for under $200. Maybe I'll try it myself. What is a good source on how to do this? If I have help from a friend who has tools...

Yes, you can easily do this yourself. When you get the pump make sure you get new seals. No special tools needed. Basic steps after you get the parts. Drain the tank, release the electrical connectors from the pump connections, release the 2 retaining straps, lower the tank, remove the pump unit from the tank and install the new one then reverse the removal process.

Removal of fuel lines from fuel pump assembly

There is special disconnect tool just for 98-00 classic CK pickups. Lisle makes them they are a two piece plastic tool that is pretty cheap to buy. Do not buy a regular disconnect tool bcause they will not fit in the lines at the pump. The lisle number at Carquest is 37500. Please rate.
