Trying to determine how to access the fuel pump in 2004 Jetta to replace it. Do you have to drop the tank or is there access through the vehicle elsewhere? I am unable to locate this information, other...


The pumps are installed inside your fuel tank; since liquid fuel cannot blow up, this is the best location for installation. In order to replace it you must drop the tank and get at the pump from the top. I would check fuse #28, which is the fuse to the fuel pump relay before pulling the pump. Otherwise, you would be wise to consider the amount of work involved in dropping the tank. It requires removing the bolts from the straps, pulling the fuel lines, removing the gas inlet, removing the connectors and then you get to the pump. Let me know if you want to go this route and I will do my best to give you step by step direction to remove the pump.

  1. With the engine turned OFF , relieve the fuel pressure at the pressure regulator. Refer to the fuel relief procedure in this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
  4. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it.
  5. Using a hammer and a drift punch, drive the fuel lever sending device and pump assembly locking ring (located on top of the fuel tank) counterclockwise. Lift the assembly from the tank and remove the pump from the fuel lever sending device.
  6. Pull the pump up into the attaching hose while pulling it outward away from the bottom support. Be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and strainer during removal. After the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector.
  1. Connect the fuel pump to the hose.

Be careful that you don't fold or twist the strainer when installing the sending unit, or you'll restrict fuel flow.
  1. Install a new O-ring on the pump assembly and then position them into the fuel tank.
  2. Turn the locking ring clockwise until its tight.
  3. Install the fuel tank and connect the battery cable.
If you dont feel like dropping the tank and hassling with the hangers because they often break cut a hole in the bed of your truck over the tank where the fuel pump is but be careful not to hit the wires. dont cut the piece out completely cut it so you can pry it up to oneside

Where is fuel pump


The fuel pump is in the gas tank...
I haven't worked on this type of car before, but by the year Im guessing there probably isn't an access to it from the inside of the car... Chances are you will need to drop the tank and pull it out...
not fun...
