Hi, I have this problem for a month now. When I take my foot of the gas in gear except for fifth and sixth gear the car jerks back and forth and the rpm bounces. The car is a manual and no check engine light is on.

Here is a guide to help you step by step with instructions in the diagrams below to show you how on your car. For your car the fuel pump can be accessed through a tap door so you don't need to drop the tank :)

This video shows the job being done on a similar car but the process is the same.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
