IMPORTANT: Always replace the fuel sender seal when reinstalling the fuel sender assembly.

Remove the fuel tank.
Remove the fuel sender shield from the fuel tank.
Disconnect the quick-connect fittings at the fuel sender assembly.
Disconnect the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor electrical connector.

NOTE: Do Not handle the fuel sender assembly by the fuel pipes. The amount of leverage generated by handling the fuel pipes could damage the joints.

IMPORTANT: When removing the fuel sender assembly from the fuel tank, the reservoir on the fuel sender is full of fuel. The fuel sender must be tipped slightly during removal in order to avoid damage to the float. Place any remaining fuel in an approved container, once the fuel sender has been removed from the fuel tank.

Remove the fuel sender assembly, and the fuel sender seal from the fuel tank.
