There is usually a round locking clip that is underneath the line connector. There is a special tool you can buy, or you can fashion a cylindrical piece of plactic to snap over the line that will fit under the line-shroud. a bic pen usually works for me - cut a section off, make it into a 'c', and snap it over the line. Then push it under the shoud. It should push the locking ring back and the line should come off.

How do I install a fuel pump on a 2000 ford Explorer


disconnect all fuel lines to the tank, vacuum hoses to tank and electrical connections at tank, fuel filler hose from gas cap. support the fuel tank and undo the tank straps then lower the fuel tank(it will be heavy). clean surface of tank from dirty then undo the locking ring that holds the tank unit to the tank and remove the unit. I think on this model of truck the complete unit gets changed not just the pump. assembly in reverse.

On a 2007 ford explorer sport trac how to change the fuel pump


The "quick disconnect" fittings for the fuel lines are usually problematic to disconnect unless you use this tip. The fittings get full of dirt over time. First, use compressed air to blow out the dirt. Then spray the connection with penetrating oil. Now insert your disconnect tool and it will come apart much easier. It's also easier to disconnect all the hoses & electrical connectors after dropping the tank down about 6 to 12 inches. Below is a video which shows how to do this job. Do yourself a favor. When you re-install the tank, apply anti seize compound to the threads of the mounting bolts. That way, if you ever have to remove it again in the future, those bolts will come out easily.

Where is the fuel pump located. Is in the tank its self or what.


On the 96' Ford Explorer, both 2WD and 4WD models, the Fuel Pump is located in the tank. It is serviced by first removing the Fuel Tank from the vehicle. The Fuel Module is on the top portion of the tank towards vehicle rear, at the highest section of the tank.
Be sure to SAFELY release fuel system pressure before disconnecting any fuel lines.

(special tool required) Then drop it down, remove the retaining ring from the top of the tank and pull the entire sending unit/fuel pump asm. straight up and out...reverse procedure to install the new asm.
