FUEL PUMP

i have a 01 s60 and it is leaking gas around the tank only when the car is running. I was told it was the fuel pump so I got a new one but I can't figure out how to drop the gas tank. Can you help.

You do not have to drop the tank. You remove the bottom of the rear seat and the seat back of rear seat on pass. Side. The padding on the side of seat has to come out before the seat back and it is a little tricky and you might break it but access the fuel pump through the two aluminum covers underneath. Pull the bottom of rear seat out and you will see them. The one on the drivers side is the level sensor which you will also have to remove. Take it out first and tie a small rope or some mechanics wire to it and pull it through when you pull the fuel pump out through the other side. It will be hell if you don't. That year has and extended warranty on the fuel pump for that problem. I work as a tech for a dealer, I cant remember if it goes 2 150 or 200k miles. Let me know how it goes. Jwtucker23@yahoo. Com. Check with a local dealer and ask about it before you do it and you could get it all done for free if it goes to 200000 I just cant remember. If you do it be sure to replace the 2 seals that are green, the old ones are black. Hope I could help. Merry christmas.
