Take a sawzall and cut the bracket in half, the bracket is not needed and the stupid ford engineers were all on coffee break when they thought that through, just cut it and leave it off.

Usually they are in a powerbox under the hood. Do a Websearch with a title of "1997 Ford Thunderbird fuel pump relay location". The hits you get will lead you to good diagrams and some actual photos.

Do i have to remove my timing belt in order to replace my water pump in my 1997 ford thunderbird lx its a 4.6 v8


Your car use3s a timing chain not a belt. The water pump will be serviced by first removing the serpentine belt and then removing the water pump pulley and then finally removing the water pump. It is a fairly easy pump to replace.

If you have any further question please ask I I will be happy to help.

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 1997 Ford thunderbird?


Electric Fuel Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Non-Supercharged
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Remove the fuel tank and place it on a bench.
  3. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump retaining flange so it will not enter the tank during pump removal and installation.
  4. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise and remove the locking ring.
  5. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly. Remove and discard the seal ring. To install:
  6. Clean the fuel pump mounting flange, fuel tank mounting surface and seal ring groove.
  7. Apply a light coating of grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly and install in the seal ring groove.
  8. Install the fuel pump and bracket assembly carefully to ensure the filter is not damaged. Make sure the locating keys are in the keyways and the seal ring remains in the groove.
  9. Hold the pump assembly in place and install the locking ring finger-tight. Make sure all the locking tabs are under the tank lock ring tabs.
  10. Rotate the locking ring clockwise until the ring is against the stops.
  11. Install the fuel tank in the vehicle. Add a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel to the tank and check for leaks.
  12. Install a suitable fuel pressure gauge on the valve on the fuel rail.
  13. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON for 3 seconds. Repeat this procedure 5–10 times until the pressure gauge shows at least 35 psi. Check for fuel leaks.
  14. Remove the pressure gauge, start the engine and check for leaks. prev.gif next.gif

Need help replacing fuel pump. 1996 ford thunderbird lx. 3.8 can't locate how to remove gas tank.


Disconnect the battery & any fuel lines you can and the same with electrical connectors first of all. Drain the tankwith a siphon pump if 3 gallons or more of fuel is present. It gets heavy to replace back in and dangerous too.. Have the tank supported now & remove the bolts from the tanks mounting straps. Drop the tank down about 6 inches and check for other connection that need to be removed
RFemove the center retainer to remove the fuel pump with the sending unit
I would replace both items since it is an older car and also replace the filter sock to the pump too
Reverse this procedure to install

To remove the water pump do I need to remove the power steering


From the sounds of it you have the 3.8L V6, to get that bracket off you will need to remove the power steering pulley, to do this you will need a power steering pulley remover and installer, the only other way is to cut the bracket which is not a good idea.
