Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 01:38 PM about the 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have accessed the fuel pump through the access in the trunk but when I go to pull the pump it will not come out. It seems the pump is just a fraction larger that the opening. I just need to replace the fuel level sensor so my Daughter is not stuck on the side of the road out of fuel. HELP

Thank you very much. I just got back from the parts store and they brought up the original fuel pump on there computer and it shows the floating device not attached so the guy is telling me that is unusual and more than likely I have to remove the floating device before I pull the fuel pump to get it out.
