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.

Removal of rear seat to replace fuel filter?

You have to remove the back lower seat and gain access to the fuel pump. If you follow the fuel lines coming out from the fuel pump and going towards front of the car, you will be able to locate the fuel filter right on top of the fuel tank, on the right side of the fuel pump access hole

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1996 japanese honda civic ferio ?

Fuel pump is in the top of your fuel tank.
Your fuel tank is under your back seat.
There may be a plate covering the pump access. Remove the screws and remove the plate. You will find the lines and cables entering the tank.

If you don't have a covering plate you have two options:
1. remove the tank from below (Very hard work.)
2. with a sharp chisel cut a hole about 8" in diameter in the very center hub under the seat. Be VERY careful to cut sideways and not straight down. Leave enough material so you can bend it back. Seal it with silicone once the job is done. MUCH MUCH easier than removing the tank.

1993 tercel(115,000. mi), is it possible for the seal between the fuel pump and fuel tank to begin leaking? Getting small residual leakage running (it appears ) of the top half of fuel tank.

Remove the back seat cushion, the bottom one, and the fuel pump is right there underneath. It has a panel that covers the fuel pump which youll see after you remove the back seat. Remove the panel and you will see whats leaking. Most likely either the fuel inlet, outlet or return line is leaking.

But if something is leaking you will definitely see it.

Sounds like your fuel lines are leaking, These are located on top of the fuel tank, There is 4 lines that come from the pump . One may have rubbed a hole in the return line and getting fumes inside the auto.If so these have to be replaced by removing fuel tank and removing fuel lines. Good luck to you.

How do i get to fuel pump on my 2005 cavaliar

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.The 2 straps that hold up the tank, and carefully lower it. The fuel tank is easier to handle ,if you empty the fuel. As you lower the tank, the fuel lines need to come off. After the tank is removed ,remove the ring on top and that holds the fuel pump in place

Where is the fuel filter?

Hello travis.... The fuel filter is actually in the fuel tank and is accessable. On the 2004 Kia Optima EX, 2.7L automatic there is an access cover behind the back seat in the trunk. Another individual I spoke with said his was located under his back seat. This all depends on engine, year, model.

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.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

How to install fuel filter&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.

    Remove fuel pump from 1999 jetta

    It's on top of the fuel tank so fold the rear seat bottom out of the way,pull back the floor cover and remove the panel covering the top of the tank. The fuel delivery assembly is removed as a unit. First remove the electrical connectors and fuel lines. Cover the fuel lines with a cloth as pressure will let some fuel spurt out of the line. Remove the retaining ring. VW has a special tool for this but you can make something that will work. Lift the unit out of the tank. Some units ( 2.0 BBW ) have the retaining ring bolted and the nuts have to removed to get the unit loose.
