to change a fuel pump on a 97 surberban 1500 do you need to take the ball joint out ?

Asked by Oct 25, 2013 at 06:20 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

we took our 97 surberban 1500 to a car shop yesterday to get a new fuel pump in. When
we took it home while driveing the whole tire on the passenger side came off.

fuel pump is in the gas tank in the back of the truck -- Ive never touched the tires while doing fuel pumps -- sounds like some bad luck --!


To answer your question, no front end components need to be removed to replace your fuel pump or even the fuel filter. Like Paul stated the pump is located in the fuel tank.


Since the tire came off, what kind of damage did you incur? Yu might be looking at replacing brakes and other parts.
