Question about 1999 Volvo S80
How do i remove the back seat to see the fuel line and or top of the fuel tank?
Posted on Aug 19, 2008
In the 03, the bottom of the back seat has two (2) spring hooks about 12 or so inches from the side (looks like this, o= hook _= front of seat bottom), (_o____o_). Just pull up on each one and the seat bottom will come up and out/forward. The seat back has a couple of bolts that you will see once you remove the seat bottom. Remove bolt(s) and slide the seat back to the outside. There are two (2) "windows" to the tank. One on driver's side that will be visible when you remove the seat bottom (and pull back the carpet and insulation, and one behind the seat-back on the passenger's side (this is where the fuel pump, et. al. is/are. Driver's side is just the second float. There is a wire and hose that connects the two floats, so you may want to disconnect the battery to avoid any electrical current in the tank.

There is a hatch in the trunk behind the rear seats - remove it and the top of the tank is exposed where the fuel lines go into the tank and down to the pump.

De-pressurize the Camry's fuel system. With the gas cap open (to release pressure in that location), open the fuse/relay panel under the hood and remove the relay labeled "C/OPN." Start the engine and let it run until it stops. Disconnect the battery's negative cable.
Detach the rear seat from the car. Lift up the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, disconnect the mounting bolt underneath and remove the cushion. Pull up the seat back locks, flip the seat backs down and remove the mounting bolts.
Remove the service hole cover from the floor under the seat concealing the fuel pump/sending unit.
Disconnect the fuel line and electrical connectors from the fuel pump unit. Remove the retaining bolts and withdraw the unit carefully out of the fuel tank.
Release the clips on the fuel pump assembly's plastic support with a screwdriver to remove the support. Then pull off the rubber isolator, remove the fuel sock filter and disconnect the electrical connector from the top of the assembly. You can now withdraw the fuel pump from the housing.
Connect the new fuel pump into place on the assembly housing. Reassemble the fuel pump/sending unit in order, from the electrical connector to the fuel sock filter, rubber isolator and bottom plastic support.
Place the pump unit back within the fuel tank and reattach the bolts. Reconnect the electrical connectors and the fuel line. Reattach the rear seats.
Replace the "C/OPN" relay, reconnect the negative battery cable and fill the fuel tank if it is empty.
Pressurize the Camry's fuel system by turning the ignition on for a couple of seconds. Then turn it off for ten and repeat this five to ten times.
