    I have access in the cargo area. I just need to release the pump and pull it out, but how do I do that?

    I had to get a flat head screwdriver and lift up slightly between the pump and the ring to get the gasket to release. Then it was a piece of cake. Thanks!

    does your model have the access panel to the tank or do you have to drop the tank?

If you have removed the snap ring then the pump will pull free. there is a o-ring that seals the pump . you have to pull quite hard because it fits real snug. remember to lube the new o-ring when installingh new pump. it will fit just as snug so you really have to push the new pump in in order to put the snap ring back on

You probably need to hammer the pump assembly lightly with a punch or dull chisel. Does it have little ears that it will twist out of. There are usually little raised detents in the ears.

Fuel pump wont slide in...

I had that issue and found out that I had to push in in slightly and tune the cover withthe other hand to get it tight. if you try to get it tootight it would come off again. Also the tow top hoses need to be intalled b4 you try to tighten the black cover or screw or what ever that is called!

1998 land rover discovery fuel pump/relay

Under the hood next to the firewall is your multi-function box. It controls fuel and other things in your truck. You can pull your fuel supply line loose at the back of the injection rail and have someone turn the key on to see if you are getting fuel. If you are not, you will need test for power to the multi-function box and fuel pump. If you don't have a basic understanding of how to test for power to these components, my advice will not be much of an immediate help.

98 land rover discovery fuel pump replacement directions

This site has a lot of information regarding your Discovery including pricing, specs etc. I suspect you can find what you need here:

I was going to write that typical fuel pressure ranges somewhere between 15 & 25# and would have been 12# low.
Guess checking before pretending expertise is wise . . .
