SOURCE: How do you remove the fuel pump from the fuel

only two things it can be. one would be that the ground strap is still atached, the other thing is the gasket under the pump has welded the two together. in this case, if your sure you have the retaining ring all the way loose, tap pump with a brass hammer(only!) then work it loose. good luck.

How to install fuel filter&pump


  • De-pressurize the Camry's fuel system. With the gas cap open (to release pressure in that location), open the fuse/relay panel under the hood and remove the relay labeled "C/OPN." Start the engine and let it run until it stops. Disconnect the battery's negative cable.

  • Detach the rear seat from the car. Lift up the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, disconnect the mounting bolt underneath and remove the cushion. Pull up the seat back locks, flip the seat backs down and remove the mounting bolts.

  • Remove the service hole cover from the floor under the seat concealing the fuel pump/sending unit.

  • Disconnect the fuel line and electrical connectors from the fuel pump unit. Remove the retaining bolts and withdraw the unit carefully out of the fuel tank.

  • Release the clips on the fuel pump assembly's plastic support with a screwdriver to remove the support. Then pull off the rubber isolator, remove the fuel sock filter and disconnect the electrical connector from the top of the assembly. You can now withdraw the fuel pump from the housing.

  • Connect the new fuel pump into place on the assembly housing. Reassemble the fuel pump/sending unit in order, from the electrical connector to the fuel sock filter, rubber isolator and bottom plastic support.

  • Place the pump unit back within the fuel tank and reattach the bolts. Reconnect the electrical connectors and the fuel line. Reattach the rear seats.

  • Replace the "C/OPN" relay, reconnect the negative battery cable and fill the fuel tank if it is empty.

  • Pressurize the Camry's fuel system by turning the ignition on for a couple of seconds. Then turn it off for ten and repeat this five to ten times.

    How do i replace the fuel filter on a 2000 Nissan Sentra


    Fuel filter for SRDE20B15 engines (00-01) are in the tank mounted on top of the fuel pump inside the fuel assembly. Release fuel pressure by starting car and removing the fuel pump fuse, open fuel filler cap, remove rear seat, open fuel assembly cover by turning the screws clockwise, remove harness, remove fuel line quick connector carefully (if pressure was not relieved, gas will leak, make sure to release pressure completely), take out fuel assembly (watch out for fuel level sensor and temp sensor thingies). Pop top off the fuel assembly and pop fuel level sensor unit with screwdriver. Remove fuel pump harness connector, quick connectors. Pop top off completely, pop fuel filter+pump assembly out, remove fuel pump bracket on the bottom of it. Push fuel pump down from the top harness connector, Take out the rubber grommet (very important - car won't start) between fuel filter and fuel pump, put it into new fuel filter, and reverse all the steps to close it up.
