How do I replace a fuel pump on a 2005 Ford Escape 2.3 liter (not hybrid)


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.
