Fuel Pump Strainer Part #

Airtex part # FS216





I've been looking for a new strainer for some time and every time you look under a Focus it does not show up, tried nearly every e-cat and paper catalog. Today I wanted one real bad and did some through research. Turns out the Jaguar S-Type uses the same pump and strainer/s. Yay for having Jaguar parts on my car .

So if you have the update pump this is the strainer for you.
I'd recommend changing it if you haven't already and from that point change it every 2 years or 30,000 miles to prolong the lifespan of your fuel pump.

Hate to bring back the dead but, would you care to elaborate on "cutting the access door?" I'm assuming that you mean to make 3 cuts and pull the sheet metal back to access the fuel pump housing/sender? I'd very much like to see some pics on this as I plan on changing out my pump strainer in the next 2 weeks and hate to drop the tank.

Thanks. Now what do you do about covering it back?

you dont lol
BTW PLEASE!!!!
be extremely careful doing this. as you can see it is very close there and if you get too excited you could easily cut through to your gas tank. also be careful and consider carefully whether you want to do this or not. if you accidentally cut through the tank and send a spark into the tank you could be quite badly burned or even killed. it would be safer by a long stretch to just drop the tank and if you want THEN cut the hole. i just wanted to air on the side of caution. do as you please

I cut with a tin snips. Kinda why it is an ugly hole.

I have had the open hole for years now. Have never got water up there. Will get a little dust through the hole but nothing real bad. A little access door would be nice, but I have no clue what I did with the chunk I cut out.

Hi Guys,
Just started working on this -

the fuel pump access tutorial I found on this forum is below

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=276213

I went to the junkyard first to make sure they had a donor focus. I drilled holes in the corners of the square of metal over the fuel pump and used a hammer and screwdriver to cut the metal - no problem cutting hoses etc. - though very very slow and arduous going. While I was there i pulled the fuel pump out too! (can't hurt to have a spare, right?).

However, the sock looks pretty dirty. I'd like to know if you have any recommendations for where to get a new one specifically?

The one you posted does not look like the same part (different bag shape) - does this matter?

just go to any parts house and they will be able to find either the airtex FS216 or cross over to another brand.

Just for the record, the reason they don't list just the strainer is because every fuel pump for this car comes WITH a strainer.
