How do i remove the truck bed from 2005 chevrolet avalanch


disconnect all electrical wiring that is attached to the bed then disconnect the fuel filler tube. there is 4 bolts that hold the bed to the frame that you will have to remove. some trucks the bolts are removed from inside the bed and others from under the bed though the frame. then get help to pickup the bed and turn it to gain access to the pump or remove the bed from the frame.

How to replace 2001 s10 pickup fuel pump


This is not a full answer, but a tip on an easier way.to get to the pump. Instead of removing the gas tank. Just pull the bed off the truck! I guarantee that it will be easier. I did this on a 2001 S10 and it took less that an hour to remove the bed.
Remove the spare tire, and the tube that the tool to lower the tire goes through. You will need to unplug your tail lights under the back or the bed on both sides. There is also a grounding screw for the tail lights on each side that needs to be removed. Remove the screws that hold the gas tank filler hose to the side of the bed - right by the filler cap. Remove the tailgate (to make the bed lighter). Follow the frame down the length of the bed and you will find the bolts holding the bed on. There should be 6 or 8 bolts. My S10 had 8 bolts and my son's full size Chevy PU had 6 bolts (go figure?). Then just lift the bed off the truck. We did my S10 with 3 people and it had a camper shell and rack on it. My son's full size truck was lifted off with only 2 people. I would suggest 4 people however - one on each corner to make it easier to lift and control.
Replace the pump as described above and then you can start the engine to make sure everything works before setting the bed back on. NOTE: The fuel pump grounds back with the tail light ground. If the engine doesn't start right away, try grounding the wire back by the tail lights. It works like a charm. This is an especially nice way to do it if the gas tank is full! I spent 18 years as a professional mechanic and this is one of the slickest, least known tricks I have come across. I wish I'd known about it when I was wrenching for a living! Cheers!

2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 6.0 litre fuel pump


lifting the truck bed off the frame works best if you dont have a lift..take the fuel neck loose from bed and remove bolts holding bed to frame from the drivers side..loosen the bolts on passenger side..raise the bed on drivers side while watching bumper to bed clearance on passenger side.. you should get enough clearance to remove fuel pump from tank

How does the bed on my 2006 chevy colorado attach to the frame? Do bolts just screw into nuts that are welded to the bed?


Yes it is connected with shoulder bolts and nuts up inside the frame. Some have star bolts that can be taken out from inside the bed.

Torque specs for truck bed mounts


Torque specs are not important in this application, apply some thread locking compound and tighten the bolts.

45-60 ft lbs is about right for the size bolts that are used on that box.

Hi i have a 1999 chevy silverado short bed that i want to take off where are the bolts that hold it on and what size socket do i need to use thank you


Don't know the size of socket, but if you look in the bed of the truck, you will see the heads of the bolts(round objects about an inch or so in dia) and this will give you the locatiopn for the bolts. Also don't forget to unhook your fuel fill hoses and all electrical connections! before lifting bed.
