Prepare your vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable Access the fuel pump by taking out the rear seat cushion so you can remove the fuel pump cover. Disconnect the fuel gauge connector, fuel gauge and hoses. Unplug the electrical connection from the fuel pump and remove the fuel pump from its bracket. Discard the seal ring. Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit and be sure to replace the seal ring so that it remains in the groove. Hold the fuel pump assembly and pull the fuel pump down so it is tight against the bracket. Use care to avoid damaging the filter. Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure.

wear gloves- do not let gasoline come into contact with your skin and do not breathe the vapors- gas is highly carcinogenic- buena suerte
