Remove the muffler mount.
Remove the heat shields.
Remove the fuel tank cover.
Remove the drain plug and drain the gasoline into a approved container.

Where is the fuel pump locted on a 99 acura tl


HI. First, you will need to remove the filler cap. This will release the pressure in the tank. Once this is done, simply, remove the rear seat. This will expose the fuel pump access panel.The access panel will be secured by three screws. Remove the screws to lift the access panel. Once the panel is lifted, the pump will be accessible.
