You didn't mention what year model your bike was but usually on most late models built after 1990 or so, the wires have plugs. These plugs are not interchangable and will only plug into the proper mating plug. If this doesn't answer your question, please be more specific.

you can just look at the left and right side above rear tires. and see
if your hands are small enough to fit here. Id bet not.
some mech, report, the tank can be tilted down at front (drained fuel)
and gain access.
keep in mind, you get fuel siphoning at any time. do not open the system, with fuel in the tank, and then drive to autozone,
i loosen the gas cap so that pressure can not build in tank.
expanding fuel can push fuel out , during a filter change. very
dangerous in a garage, and you gone.
it's just a vent hose, you can see, it and what needs to be done is really obvious. given you arms sides and lenght.

Fuel line in tank dry rotted how do you replace

Hi classic11369...

Remove the old fuel line and filter from the tank...
You will insert a wire a little smaller than the diameter of the inside of the fuel line, and you will bend a small hook on the end of the line to fit over the fuel line (be sure to use a small wire) .
Lubricate the first 1 inch of fuel line with vasoline lightly...using your fingers or neednose pliers collapse the fuel line and insert it into the fuel tank, entend the fuel line long enought to go out of the fuel tank so you can reconnect the fuel filter...then pull some of the fuel line back into the fuel tank...
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

    Where is the fuel pump located in a 1985 fiero


    The Fiero is equipped with a electric fuel pump and gauge sending unit mounted in the fuel tank. The pump is serviced and a complete unit by removing the fuel tank.

    CAUTION To reduce the risk of fire and personal injury, it is necessary to relieve the fuel system pressure before servicing any fuel system component. If this procedure is not performed, fuel may be sprayed out of the connection under pressure. Always keep a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher near the work area.

    1. Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
    2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.

    Remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block located in the passenger compartment. Start the engine and run until the engine stops due to the lack of fuel. Crank the engine for 3 seconds to ensure all pressure is relieved.
    1. Drain all the fuel from the tank using a suction pump.
    2. Raise the vehicle and support with jackstands.
    3. Disconnect the wiring from the tank.
    4. Remove the ground wire retaining screw from under the body.
    5. Disconnect all hoses and filler neck from the tank.
    6. Support the tank on a jack and remove the retaining strap nuts.
    7. Lower the tank enough to disconnect the fuel sending unit wires.
    8. Disconnect the fuel line, vapor line and return line.
    9. Remove the tank from the vehicle.
    10. Remove the fuel gauge/pump retaining ring by turning the cam lock ring counterclockwise using a spanner wrench such as tool J-24187.
    11. Remove the gauge unit and the pump.

    To install:
    1. Inspect the fuel pump attaching hose for any signs of deterioration and replace if necessary. Also, check the rubber sound insulator at the bottom of the pump.
    2. Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose.
    3. Using a new O-ring seal, install the pump assembly into the tank.
    4. Install the cam lock ring over the pump and lock by turning clockwise with a spanner wrench J-24187 or equivalent.
    5. Support the tank on a suitable jack.
    6. Raise the tank enough to connect all fuel and filler hoses.
    7. Connect all electrical wires to the pump and tank.
    8. Raise the tank and install the retaining strap nuts. Use new sound reducing pad if they are damaged. Check all connections and wire to ensure proper installation before refilling the tank.
    9. Refill the tank with unleaded fuel. Reconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
    10. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks and gauge operation.

    How to change a fuel pump on a 2002 crystler sebring

    Pump is in the tank.....
    1. Locate the fuel filter, which is mounted on the frame above the back of the fuel tank. Remove the fuel pump relay from the power distribution center, then start the engine. Allow it to run until it stalls. Try to start it again and let it run until it stalls. Repeat this procedure until it no longer will start, then turn the ignition off.
    2. Step 2 Loosen and lower the fuel tank assembly to get to the fuel filter. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Open the trunk and find the 4-pin connector under the trunk mat on the left side near the base of the shock tower. Disconnect the fuel pump wiring jumper from the body harness.
    3. Step 3 Push the body grommet out and feed the jumper completely through the hole in the body. Relieve the fuel system pressure by slowly removing the fuel filter cap. Raise and support the vehicle.
    4. Step 4 Put a fuel container under the drain plug, which is on the bottom-left of the fuel tank. Remove the plug and let the fuel drain out. Reinstall the plug and tighten it to 32 inch pounds.
    5. Step 5 Disconnect the driver's side fuel tank strap and loosen the passenger's side fuel tank strap. Squeeze the fuel filter hose connector to release the tabs and disconnect the fuel lines. Then, take out the fuel filter.
    6. Step 6 Put a bit of engine oil on the ends of the new fuel filter. Connect it to the fuel tubes. Reposition the fuel tank and put the fuel tank straps back on, tightening the bolts to the bolts to 17 foot pounds. Reconnect the fuel pump module connector.
    7. Step 7 Connect the negative battery cable. Refill the fuel tank and wipe up any fuel that may have spilled during the filter replacement. Check for fuel leaks when you start your Chrysler Sebring

    Check your fuel pressure.
    Hopefully this tank is not full, as you need to pull the tank to change fuel pump, this is mounted onto the tank through the top. There are several plastic fitting and hose connecitons on the tank as well as the fuel level connector. There may also be a Vapor pressure sensor on the tank. After unbolting the tank lower the tank just far enough to remove the wireing and hoses. Make sure top of tank is clean. If you have to move tank out from under Blazer cover hose aconnectionss and wash off top of tank and flange area. Unlock flange and R and R pump assembly. Reconnect hoses and wires, reinstall tank. Connect hose to fuel test port on engine, purge air from fuel system. Check the fuel pressure. InMrFixIt

    Fuel pump removal 96 nissan quest

    Replace Fuel Pump for 1997 Nissan Quest

    (1) If the fuel tank has more than one third full, you need to get the gasoline out. If it has one third or less full, you can leave it in the tank. However be very careful around the working area. Make sure you have read fire precautions in a general repair book. Take the fuel pump fuse out from the fuse box near the battery. Run starter for a few seconds. This will remove the fuel pressure in the gas lines. Disconnect battery at negative terminal. Jack up the rear of the van.

    (2) Remove the fuel tank protector.

    (3) Disconnect fuel pipes at the front end of the fuel tank. Use short pencils and extra rubber hoses to block disconnected pipes and hoses.
    59aa089.jpg There are two pipes connected to the gasoline filler at the side of the van. Disconnect only the smaller one. The larger one is flex enough for the tank to be lowered.

    (4) Disconnect the electrical from this connector. Jack the rear end of the fuel tank with a car jack and a piece of 2x4. Put the wood between the jack point and the tank. Then unbolt the two bolts showing in the picture.
    (5) Lower the jack after the bolts are removed. The rear end of the tank should be lowered.


    (6) Disconnect fuel lines on top of the fuel pump. Reconnect each short hose back to different pipes as shown in picture to block the pipes.
    (7) Loose the six mounting bolts on the fuel pump assembly. The bolts should be loosen a little at a time in multiple turns. Also detach the electrical wire holders. After all bolts are removed, carefully take the assembly out of the tank.

    (8) Remove the fuel pump from the assembly as shown in picture. Then unplug the electrical wires. Note that two connectors are in different sizes, so that you will not be able to reconnect to a wrong terminal.
    (9) Put the new pump and new filter in. Reconnect the electrical wires. If necessary use a pair of pliers to make the connectors tighter. Make sure they are not loose. Reconnect gas inlet to the pressure regulator.
    (10) Use a new O ring, put back the assembly to the fuel tank. Make sure the float of the fuel level senser is free, and the assembly is at the right orientation (as shown in picture). Screw back the 6 bolts after making sure the O ring is in right place. The bolts should be tightened in turns. Do not over tighten them. Then reconnect the fuel lines and make sure every fastener is tight. Put the electrical wire into holders.
    (11) Jack up the tank and put the two mounting bolt in. (see picture in step 4). Make sure they are tightened with specific torque. Reconnect the electrical connector.

    (12) Reconnect two fuel lines at the front side of the tank. Refer to the picture in step 2. Reconnect the hose to the gasoline filler. Before you have a try start, double check if all fuel lines are securely connected and tightened.

    (13) Start the engine. You need to crank more than a normal start because the lines were empty. The pressure is built up in some time.

    (14) If engine starts ok, turn it off. Then check under the van if there is any leakage. If everything is fine put back the tank protector. (picture in step 2).
