Asked by Sep 09, 2016 at 12:02 PM about the 2005 Ford Escape XLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everything I can find online shows pumps with a sending line and a return
line.  My Escape has a non-return to take fuel system.

Access panel should be under the driver side rear passenger seat. Fold the bottom seat cushion forward and pull back the carpet to access the panel. Standard fuel pump replacement should be followed. Once you have the fuel pump kit in your hand you will see how it goes together. Check out youtube for some videos for help.

I guess I should have put more detail in this. I can get into tank but can't tell how to remove the fuel pump. All videos I have found show fuel pumps with a return line as well as a sending line. Mine only has a sending line and the unit isn't attached to the cover at the top of the tank.

I ran into this too. I have a 2005 Escape with a 3.0L V6. On pumps with onboard vapor recovery, the pump is attached to the bottom of the tank. There are 2 plastic clips on top of the module. You can unclip them with your fingers, no tools needed. Just reach in pop the clips and pull up. The pump module will come out, but have lots of rags around the opening as it will have a lot of fuel in it. I did not disconnect the sensor above the pump attached to the hoses, I just pushed it out of the way while pulling the pump out. The pump will fit through, pull up carefully so you don't bend the float rod. You will have to angle it out but just go slowly and it will be easy.
