1996 accord ex fuel pump replacement

some of these had an access cover under the rear seat(the part you sit on),if you remove this,there should be a cover in the floor board that you remove,and you should see the top of the fuel pump assembly.disconnect the hoses(be careful fuel pressure may still be in the lines).disconnect the electrical wires,remove screws holding unit in gas tank remove pump assembly.transfer necessary components and reverse removal.if there is no access cover then you will have to drop the fuel tank taking care of the wiring and fuel lines.the procedure is the same as above to replace pump.change the fuel filter.

    • Negative battery cable
  3. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  4. Drain the fuel tank.
  5. Remove or disconnect the following:

    WARNING Do not handle the fuel sender assembly by the fuel pipes. The amount of leverage generated by handling the fuel pipes could damage tool Joints.

  6. Disconnect the fuel and evaporative emission (EVAP) lines from the fuel tank module.
  • Fuel sender assembly retaining ring using a fuel tank sending unit wrench. Remove the fuel sender assembly and the seal. Discard the seal.
  • Note the position of the fuel strainer on the fuel sender. Support the fuel sender assembly with one hand and grasp the strainer with the other hand. Pull the strainer off the fuel sender. Discard the strainer after inspection. Inspect the strainer. Replace a contaminated strainer and clean the fuel tank.
  • Fuel pump electrical connector
  • Electrical connector retaining clip from the fuel level sensor
  • Sensor electrical connector from under the fuel sender cover
  • Fuel level sensor retaining clip

      • New seal on the fuel tank

      NOTE The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position when the fuel sender is installed in the tank. When installing the fuel sender assembly, assure that the fuel pump strainer does not block full travel of the float arm.

      • Fuel sender assembly retaining ring

    Where is teh fuel filter located on my 99 yukon

    The fuel filter is located under the vehicle on the inside of the frame rail,drivers special tool is required. A 5/8 line wrench to break loose the fuel lines. There is one bolt that holds the bracket to the frame you'll have to remove. Use caution due to fuel pressure on the line.

    Need to change fuel pump on 2004 GMC Yukon XL Denali and need instructions on how to remove old pump and put in new pump

    well i hope its not full of fuel, remove the filler neck from the car should be 3 bolts by the fuel door, there will also be a ground cable up by thefuel door to remove, next you will have to remove the two straps that hold the fuel tank up slowly lower it as you will have fuel lines and elctrical plugs that need to be detached, the fuel lines have quick fittings, you can buy a tool at auto stores to make removing them easier, un plug the wires., once the tank is out there is a snap ring holding hte fuel pump in the tank. taking a hammer and small drift turn the ring this will release the sending unit, so that you can instull the new one, now reassemble
