88 Fiero 2.5. Trying to put in a new fuel pump.
88 Fiero 2.5. Trying to put in a new fuel pump. I have the tank on the garage floor under the car. Is there some trick to getting the plug with the 3 wires off? It's not budging and I don't want to break it. I don't see any kind of lock or anything but it's holding solid.
GM sometimes uses a connector with a separate piece that gets removed first. Look for a small piece that pulls up or can be removed. It holds the locking tab in place.
Thanks tenspeed. I'm not seeing anything like a lock or pin or anything. But I'm beting there is something. It's just holding to solid to be just hard to unplug. I'll keep looking.
Here are pics of what I have. :)
trace it back towards the frame -- it probably disconnects there and not off the tank -- look in your new kit -- they may have given you butt connectors knowing that you will have to cut the wires --
I'm with Paul. That does not look like a electrical disconnect on top of the pump. Follow the wires down to a male/female electrical connector.
No, it isn't. Chased the wires as far as could but did not find a plug of any kind. I have enough slack so I turned the tank on it's side and took everything out, leaving the wires where they are. BUT! I forgot to get a strainer. Have to run to the parts store tomorrow and get one before I put it back together. Forward Ho! :) Thanks for your help guys. :)
Yes there is a bright yellow three pin plug on the firewall. The wire runs through a hole in the frame and down to the tank. Hope you didn't screw anything up by trying to get it off
No, I was very careful not to screw it up. All done, works great. Thanks for reply. :)
