replacing fuel pump
so i have gotten mostly conflicting information about this question. when replacing the fuel pump do you really have to drop the tank or can you use the access panel under the compartment behind the front seats? some forums say drop it, others say you don't have to... anyone know for a fact one way or the other?
you have to take off the tank straps, lower the tank and support the tank with a jack. You don't have to undo the hoses for the filler nozzle, but you will have to undo the fuel return line and disconnect the fuel pump pigtail that is in the access compartment behind the front seats. Now once the tank is part way off, you will see a circular mount, with two metal fuel lines leading into it (one will be the fuel return line and the other is a banjo bolt) and six bolts, at the furthest end of the fuel tank -- That is the support bracket for the fuel pump. Use a 19 mm socket to take off the main bolt for the fuel pump line and then use a 17 mm wrench to undo the banjo bolt. Undo those six bolts, and begin to pull out the fuel pump mount. As you do this, tilt the mount at angle and pull it out slowly. then replace the pump and filter strainer and you're good to go. But do this in a well ventilated area. I did it in my gf's garage with the door wide open and still got a horrific headache from the fumes. if something was unclear just lemme know and ill clarify. good luck. 88 CRX Si: D16Z6 mini me swap
