You can get this fuel pump here
http://store.monkeywrenchracing.com/product_info.php?cPath=42_49_192&products_id=844
here we go

1.Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

2.Open your gas lid, and open the gas cap so you can release the pressure.

3.Take rear seats out of the car.

4.You will now be able to see the fuel pump assembly covered by a metal plate, at first I didn’t think I was going to be able to get it off but just pry it out with a flat head screw driver.


5.now disconnect the 2 harnesses from the pump assembly


6.Now disconnect both of the lines that connect to the pump, the one on the back of the assembly is a bitch to get out, just play with it and it will come off.


7.now with a screw driver unbolt all 8 bolts.


8.Now you can pull the whole assembly out, be careful with the filter, place it on top of a plastic bag, fuel will leak out of the old fuel pump.

9.Disconnect the bottom part of the assembly.


10.Disconnect the upper part of the assembly; you will also have to disconnect the 2 harness that I pointed out on the picture, 1 and 2. Don’t mess with the ground or the upper rubber gasket.


11.With the screw driver place the tip where the arrow is, and then just tap it till the old pump comes out.


12.Now transfer the rubber gasket thing label as #1, the yellowish thing label as#2, and the filter label as #3, transfer everything to the new pump.

it should look like this ones is done.





13.Put the new pump into the assembly.


14.Now you will have to rewire the connection. As you can see here in the pix how much I cut, and then just rewired it with electrical tape.
you can also solder the wires together, if you know how to solder thing, then go ahead and do as you know.








15.Now put the top part back on, you will have to modify the bottom part of the assembly, I used a regular sharp knife. Cut as much as you see here in the picture
top


Bottom after modified


16.put pump assembly back in place

17.put all 8 bolts back together

18.connect the lines, and harnesses

19.Place the top metal plate back on; it should still stick right back on.

20.Try to start the car and check for any leaks.

This was done in my car wile my motor was out of the car, so I can’t really test it out and see if this worked. If I missed something please correct me so this could be added to the install guide section.

I believe removing the connector on the pump while the car is running will also help remove pressure from the system. The car will just slowly die due to lack of fuel pressure.

woah, you use electrical tape for the fuel pump wires???
yeah. why? would there be a problem?
if you know of a problem that could develop please let me know, that way i could change it. but as far a i know electrical tape is as good as it gets.

also instead if using a screw driver to unscrew the pump screws, you can also use an 8mm socket.

Much easier if your screws were rusted shut like mine.

There is a little plastic clip on that line, if you pull the plastic clip from below the line out, the line will pull straight up and out. Basically the clip just slides out of the way, I used a 90 degree pick to remove it. Be careful you don't break it though...

I know you posted this a couple months ago, but I just did mine today and had to figure that part out myself. Hopefully this well help people...

Overall the writeup def helped, thanks!

Sweet Guide, ty

Very informative and tons of pics, thanks. If one were against using electrical tape, not that i know if it's a bad thing, one could pull the wires and gold plated contacts that the wire is crimped to from the non-stock connector and run to the store to get the same contacts to crimp to, then just re-crimp the stock wires to the new contacts and slide them into the plastic connector that came with the kit. So, in short put the stock wires into the new connector from the red and black wires. *caution: they are fragile and could break.
