Question about 2001 Nissan Altima
Wudyzpp2003: To replace the fuel pump entails removing the rear seat bottom to expose an inspection hole cover which is in the floor. You remove the inspection hole cover and that gives you access to the top of the fuel tank and the place where you remove the pump.
On the drivers side near your knee and the hood release, is the fuse block. Remove the cover and look at the box.
If you are facing the box from the driver's seat, the second row in from the out side and the third fuse up is a 15 amp fuse. REMOVE it. That is for the fuel pump. If the pump was running and you were wanting to remove it, you need to relieve the fuel pressure. You do this by starting the engine with the fuse out, any residual pressure will be bled off.
If you look at the top of the tank where the fitting is, the collar is threaded on there like a bottle cap. A special tool is called for in Nissan's instruction's however, most Nissan tech's as well as those in the aftermarket use large channel lock pliers and exercise care in rotating the collar.
Obviously there are fuel hoses and electrical connectors to address prior to removing the collar. Once the collar is removed, you can lift the pump and sending unit right out of the tank.
NOTE: There are some match marks or alignment marks on the tank and on the top which the collar hold down. Look for them before you remove the top.
Once the pump is out of the tank it should be pretty evident how to transfer the new part.
