Removal of gas tank and fuel pump


In order to "drop" a gas tank, you should remove a much fuel as possible before beginning. Once empty, jack up the vehicle (making sure it is secure and safe) and then unscrew the two straps used to hang the tank to the vehicle's undercarriage. Once the tank is down, please refer to the attached videos for the actual fuel pump removal and replacment.

Having trouble dropping the tank please give me step by step instructions on how to drop the tank for 96 acura tl 3.5 i need to check my fuel pump. thank u


Drain the tank with a fuel evacuation pump, then remove the straps that hold the tank in. Once you have done that slowly let the tank down. There will be hoses that are connected to the tank remove those. Then disconnect the fuel lines. Un-clip the electrical connection from the fuel pump, then lower it to the ground and drag it out.
