Fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank. See Fig. 28 . 2. Manufacturer recommends removing fuel tank for access to fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator. See FUEL TANK . Ensure area around fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump module is clean. 3. Note direction of fuel supply line in relation to fuel tank. Remove fuel supply line from fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator. Remove retainer clamp from top of fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator. See Fig. 29 . Discard retaining clamp. 4. Using 2 screwdrivers, pry fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator from gasket on fuel pump module. Discard gasket. Ensure 2 "O" rings are still on fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator fuel inlet tube.
