Easiest way to enstall a fuel pump

There really isn't an easy way to change the fuel pump. The gas tank has to be removed. Draining the gas out of the tank will help in reinstalling the tank. A floor jacket is helpful.

How do I drain the fuel out of my 2000 VW Bettle

The easiest way to drain the fuel is to siphon the fuel from the tank through a small polypropylene hose inserted down the filler port. Be careful to push the metallic flap aside when inserting and removing the siphon hose, a small screwdriver with a large handle should work fine (so you can't drop the screwdriver into the gast tank). The only other way will be to drop the gas tank, but they recommend siphoning the gas out before you actually remove the gas tank straps. You will also need to disconnect the battery cables before you drop the tank to avoid any sparks from the wire connections.

How to replace the fuel pump on a 91 accord

Your car, like most made in the last 20 years has an electric fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank. You have to remove the fuel tank from the vehicle to replace the pump. Luckily for you, your gas tank has a drain plug, so you can drain the gas out before you remove it. You may have to remove the rear half of the exhaust system for clearance. If you are still game, reply for more detailed info.

How can i replace a electric fuel pump in my accent 02 I don't know where is it

Most fuel pumps now are in the gas tank itself.
A chilton manual for the autoparts store will show you the easiest way to do it. The book runs about $20.
You have have to remove the tank itself to do it, or there maybe a access panel inside the car underneath the carpet.

Best to get the book to find out what's the easiest and safest way.

Don't know how to safely replace the fuel pump.

Well John the safest and easiest way is to pay someone else to do it for you, but i'am sure you know that. First if you can, get all the gas you can out of tank, small siphen hose. Secound unhook electrical wires, and fuel lines, and you may have to drop down exhaust, Third unhook filler hose to tank, Fourth unbolt tank straps, and tank will come out. Now if you can't get the gas out plug filler hole on tank and put some padding on the floor and let drop out, or balance it on a floor jack but its best to have an extra set of hands to do this.

How to rmove fuel from fuel tank of 2000 chevy express van?

Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.
