It is popular for Kia to put an access panel In the floor board behind the front seats. You should have no problems removing it once that panel is removed.

Replace fuel pump can i create an access hole and not drop tank

Hi Michael, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Michael, the problem with creating an access hole is you don't know exactly where the fuel pump is and you could wind up cutting several holes before you find it. PLUS gas tanks are not that difficult to drop down, you only need to be careful to not break any plastic lines that run to it, if it has any. Please visit my auto-repair-website and give me a shout out, thanks!

How to install fuel pump on 87 dodge aries stationwagon k car

I'm pretty certain they did not have access plates or holes for the fuel pumps back in 1987. That came many years later. You will have to remove the tank for this job, so get ready to get dirty. You will be fighting a lot of rust and built up dirt. Take your time, use plenty of penetrating oil on all the bolts, screws, and fittings and let it soak in for a reasonable amount of time.

How to replace fuel pump on 87 dodge aries station wagon

There's no access hole. Need to drop fuel tank. You also need a special tool to release the fuel lines. They can be purchased at autozone or similar for a reasonable price.

Do I have to drop the fuel tank on a 2001 cougar to replace the fuel pump?

Yes, alldata says all you have to do is drop it 6 inches and remove the fuel pump from the access hole under the seat, this is untrue!! The diameter of the fuel pump assembly is larger than the hole. You have to drop the entire tank....and its a pain in the ****! Try your hardest not to break any of the plastic fittings connected to the fuel tank when dropping it, because i did.

Inside the tank fuel pump

You can not get to the fuel pump from inside the car. I have a 91 you have to drop the tank. BUT if you just have to. you can cut a 8in by 11in access panel in the center of the hump above the tank. You will need to use a non spark cutting tool like a air hammer. You will need 3 brass fittings 5/16 in I believe. (This is just an idea if you have to do it this way). I am not giving you this as advise. Just you could do this if you want to. Cut the hole so you can access the fuel pump from inside. You will have to cut the fuel lines one at the time. cut them in different locations from each other so the fittings will not interfere with each other. (room to fit and tighten these fittings) The fittings you will need are called compression. They are brass have small rings that fit over the line and compress to seal it. Once you cut your hole cut your lines remove the pump lines all as one part it takes a little finesse to get all out. Make a good fitting cover for your access hole and thats that. Clear as mud? this is just a (you could do it this way) but its not the right way. Drop that tank out the bottom take your rear end loose from the shocks, pull your exhaust hangers loose and let the muffler hang take the tank band loose get as much fuel out as you can. Jack the rear of the car up 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 feet to get the room needed to get the tank out. It is a tight tight fit be sure the car is secure because you will be pulling and jerking pulling and jerking to get the tank out. Work slow and careful.

Fuel pump 1997 kia sephia

The back seat should come out easily, and you can look. I have had two cars with fuel pumps gone bad, a camaro and a Honda. Neither had an access panel, and dropping the tank is a major pain as has several lines going to it plus electrical wires. W/ Camaro, also need to remove rear axle first. What I did was look where the fuel lines go to t he top of the tank, and using a drill, drill a series of closely spaced holes directly above the fuel pump. After holes are drilled, can "connect the dots" w/ a sharp cold chisel and hammer, and make your own access panel, and remove pump from inside car. Reinstall panel and seal with silicone or duct tape. Worked great for me.

1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement

A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
