I can't give you a diagram... but to get thr fuel pump out of the tank, there is a lock ring that holds the pump in, to remove the ring use a BRASS punch and a hammer to turn the ring counterclockwise. you will see some tabs that stickstrait up in the air- you can use those to turn the ring. remove the ring and the pump may have to twist to the left or right- but most likely will pull right out.

My 98 ford windstar keeps dying while im driving.I know it is an electrical problem.A lot of people keep thinking its my fuel pump but i don't think it is .I drive my car only to local areas just as...

The fuel pump fuse blowing is an indication of the fuel pump wires may be shorted inside the tank.
If you drop the tank and remove the module, you may find the insulation burned off some of the pump wires.

Prob a good idea to take it in. If it is happening to your model, it may be a re occurring problem for that model and mechanics may have seen it before.

  4. Install a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel and check for leaks.
