FUEL PUMP
Removal
Release fuel pressure. See FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE. Remove rear seat cushion. Remove plastic grommet from floor pan. Disconnect fuel pump module connector.
Clean area to prevent contamination in fuel tank. Disconnect fuel lines from fuel pump module by squeezing tabs on fuel line together and carefully pulling fuel lines from fuel pump module.
Using Fuel Tank Sender Wrench (D84P-9275-A), turn retainer ring counterclockwise and remove retainer ring. Remove fuel pump module. Cover fuel tank opening.
Installation
Ensure fuel pump and mounting surface is clean. Lubricate NEW " O" ring with suitable grease. Carefully install fuel pump module into fuel tank. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Pressurize fuel system and check for leaks.

The system will re-pressurize by cycling key on/off a few times after new pump fitted.

FUEL PRESSURE RELEASE
Remove fuel cap to release fuel tank pressure. Remove relief valve service port cap. Relief valve service port is located on fuel supply manifold. Using Fuel Pressure Gauge (T80L-9974-B), release fuel pressure from relief valve (Schrader valve).
If fuel pressure gauge is not available, disconnect electrical connector to IFS switch. For IFS switch location, see INERTIA FUEL SHUTOFF (IFS) SWITCH LOCATION table under INERTIA FUEL SHUTOFF (IFS) SWITCH. Crank engine for 15 seconds to reduce system pressure.
