Fuel tank and fuel pump removal on 1991 ford ranger

Open the hood and support it with the hood prop rod. Unhook the negative battery cable from the terminal with the battery wrench. Position the cable end away from the battery so that it cannot accidentally contact the battery during the rest if this procedure.

  • Disconnect the fuel filler neck from the side of the truck bed with the socket set. Unbolt the truck bed retainer bolts from the floor of the bed with the socket set.

  • Lift the bed up and off the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Walk the truck bed off the back of the Ranger and set it off to the side.

  • Rap the rag around the tip of the screwdriver, place the tip against the fuel pump retaining ring and tap the screwdriver's handle with the rubber mallet to turn the retaining ring counterclockwise. Remove the ring by hand.

  • Disconnect the fuel pump wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver. Lift the old pump out of the gas tank and insert the new pump in its place. Make sure the new pump occupies the same position and orientation the old pump had prior to removal.

  • Tighten the fuel pump retaining ring with the rag, screwdriver and mallet by rotating it clockwise. Reconnect the wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver.

  • Lift the truck bed off the ground and place it back on the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Make sure the fuel filler neck clears the frame and seats into the filler neck hole in the bed wall when you're lowering the bed onto the frame.

  • Reinstall the bed retaining bolts with the socket set and reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery with the battery wrench

    2004 Ford F150 passenger tail light grounding point?

    First look under truck for ground straps that go from frame to bed to see if one rotted or fell off. Bed usually has at least one ground strap. What is weird is that if no ground at all neither side would work. If light socket has 3 wires coming to it then ground could also be coming in through harness from far away. Yours is odd because usually ground is same for both sides. If you have no other choice find the two wires with power (you said you did this already) and cut the third (ground) and put a crimp on wire eye that you can then screw to body with sheet metal screw. Before you do that take bulb out and look for spot in bulb socket that is ground point and see if corroded or broken off. You may need new bulb socket.

    On a 2012 freightliner cascadia, how do you change the front turn signal bulb?

    The socket the bulb plugs into must be turned to the right (as if it is reverse threaded), then the bulb and socket will release. The bulb itself is simply plugged straight in, so simply pulling straight on it should remove it from the socket. Then, press the new bulb (#4157NA) firmly into the socket until you feel it "click" in, and reinsert the bulb/socket assembly back into its housing and turn it to the left until the socket "clicks" to lock it back in place.

    How to replace park light bulb on a 2002 f150?

    I assume you mean the rear brake light bulbs. First lower your tailgate. You should now see two bolts holding the tail light assembly onto the truck bed. Next just loosen the two bolts and gently pry the assembly away from the truck bed. This should expose the two light sockets. Just turn the socket until it "unlocks" and pull the socket and bulb out

    Change brake light bulb on a 2000 Nissan Frontier

    The entire bed line will need to be removed. The long screws that hold the metal bracet where the bed extender attaches also hold the tail light assembly in place.
    I pulled the bed liner up at a 45 degree angle and layed it on top of the cab. This revealed the screws. Take both screws out and lay to the side along with the metal bracket for the bed extender.
    Now firmly grab the edges of the tail light assembly and pull...there are 2 hard rubber nipples that snap in to hold the assembly. You will feel like you might break it but you won't..just pull straight back hard. The assembly will "POP" out and then you can just twist the back of each bulb there are (3) and pull you will see the bulbs..just pull the bad bulb straight out and push the new one into place. Now just reassemble. Total time will be 30-45 min. for this repair.

    I have a ford f 250 and i think its a 2006 and

    sounds like your fuel sending unit is headed south. if you decide to change yourself its a lot easier to pull the bed than to drop the tank. take 3 scews from filler neck and leave gas cap off. goto left rear and unplug bed lights from frame. get right size torqs socket and remove 6 bolts from inside bed. i usually use an air impact. get three people and a saw horse or some kind of stand. what your going to do is lift and walk the bed off the back till access cover is exposed. this sounds like alot but we ussualy do it in a 1/2 hour or less. now mind you that to get the access cover off the tank you will need certain tools. 1 large strap wrench. 1 set of plastic line lock releases.

    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.

    I have as break light out, and would like to know how to replace it.

    pull the screws out of the assembly and remove the light assembly, the screws are in the lens or on the back side of the light in the bed once you remove it you can twist the bulb socket counter clockwise and pull out the bulb socket and the bulb has to be pushed down on and twisted counter clockwise. If it's the front you will see screws in the front to remove. If you need more help reply to this post.
