1997 SW1
Sad Re: 1997 Fuel pump replacement

Holy cow!!!!

I can lift the rear seat cushion out of my 97 SW1 and the fuel pump is staring me in the face, on top of the fuel tank.

I assumed all you would need to do is disconnect the fuel lines and wiring terminal, to remove and replace the fuel pump, without removing fuel tank.

BTW, I have the same starting issues and delays, described in this thread.

I had to replace an alternator and three starters, so I think it may be cost effective to replace a weak fuel pump to save on alternator and starter replacements. The alternator is in a very bad location, between power steering pump and starter, between engine and firewall. It is removed and replaced by going thru right front wheelwell.
