Removing the fuel pump (FP) / level sensor
Secure a wire in the area of the ejector. The wire must be sufficiently long that it reaches over to the opposite side of the tank with some excess
remaining to ensure that it does not slide into the tank. The wire is needed to pull the hoses and wiring back to the left-hand side of the tank after the fuel
tank unit has been replaced.
Grip around the right-hand fuel pump (FP) / level sensor reservoir. Pinch the float in its lowest position.
NOTE: Take care with the fuel tank.
Carefully and slowly pull up the holder. Carefully work the holder out.
Pull the hoses out from the tank without pulling up the entire wire from the right-hand hole in the tank.
NOTE: It is extremely important that the float arm is not broken or bent.
Remove the wire from the fuel pump (FP) / level sensor ejector.
