amc49 That is probably an indicator of the move. Someone else here posted a while back about cutting the marked hole and his stuff didn't line up with pics, the tank pump hole had moved.

finalfantasy Holy crap I just unplugged my fuel pump through the grommet below seat with two flathead screwdrivers and fuse still blew!

Unplugged FPDM and it's ok!

amc49 Different cars. Yes location the same. It changes on some later model ones as tank hole relocated.

finalfantasy I see the first two pictures look different. One has the plastic square adhesive closer to the grommet hole than the other.

Is the location the same for 01 wagon? (Late 2000 manuf.)

carzts made the access door . cleaned the tank and the fuel pump.My pump is the old type where the base has to tightened to the floor of the tank.. .







My fuel pump is the old type ( prior owner did not change it during the recall period). For me to put the new type I will have to cut out the old fuel pump holder from the tank and buy a new fuel pump housing.For the time being I will fill my tank when it reaches the halfway mark.

DAF95 Thanks anyway!! Useful vid, BTW - even if I did only find it after the event!

purplefocus 2 of them broke whilst removing so binned , sorry.

IIRC provided the red bit ( as shown in vid are there ) you dont need any of the coloured ring you simply slide the end of the fittings on the fuel pipes in and they click.
