THERE IS NO ACCESS THROUGH THE FLOOR, U MUST REMOVE THE FUEL TANK TO REPLACE THE PUMP. BE CAREFUL, GROUND TE TANK WHILE IT S OUT, DON'T USE ANYTHING TO REMOVE PUMP MODULE RETAINING RING THAT WILL SPARK.

How do you replace a fuel pump in a 1993 grand caravan?


The pump is in the gas tank. On some early 90s models you could access the pump thru an access plate without dropping the tank.
Otherwise you have to drop the tank and take the pump out thru the top. If you do replace it, make sure you replace the filter too.

Do I have to drop the fuel tank on a 2001 cougar to replace the fuel pump?


Yes, alldata says all you have to do is drop it 6 inches and remove the fuel pump from the access hole under the seat, this is untrue!! The diameter of the fuel pump assembly is larger than the hole. You have to drop the entire tank....and its a pain in the ****! Try your hardest not to break any of the plastic fittings connected to the fuel tank when dropping it, because i did.

How do you remove fuel pump thru access hole under back seat in 99 cougar


just finished one on my 99 cougar... remove the back seat, take out the rubber ring that has the fuel pump wires running through it. on the end of the wires is a clip that has to be removed before you can unplug it... it is metal... you just pull straight out to the side and it will come out... then remove the plug from top of fuel pump.... then feel directly to the right is a nother plug that has to be unplugged.... then with a long screwdriver (flat head) and a hammer knock the keeper ring clock wise to get it out from under the tabs.... slide the rings down the fuel lines... NOTE: THESE LINES ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED..... Pick fuel pump housing up out of tank and remove the pump, and replace with new one.... you may have to drop the fuel tank a little to pick it up out of tank... that's easy too... crawl up under it make sure it is on jack stands and the emergency brake pulled, and in park.. chalk the front wheels just too make sure it doesn't move.. then on the front of the tank there is two bolts one on each side.. remove them and tank will drop down enough to do job.... hope this helps

The fuel pump is tempramental, do i need to take the tank out to replace it?


No, if you take it the dealer they will not drop the tank. you lift the back seat and in the fuel pump opening at two side and virtually make a flap each cut need to be about 3-4inches just enough to get the fuel pump out.
here is a detailed step by step How to with pictures

it took me about 40 minutes to do. you can buy the fuel pump from teamfordparts.com at about 60% of the price you would pay at your local dealer. good luck

1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement


A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
