3-114 FUEL SYSTEM (DFI)
Fuel Pump Removal
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explo-
sive under certain conditions. Make sure the area
is well-ventilated and free from any source of flame
or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot
light. Do not smoke. Turn the ignition switch OFF
and disconnect the battery (–) terminal.
To make fuel spillage minimum, draw the fuel out
from the fuel tank when the engine is cold. Be
prepared for fuel spillage; any spilled fuel must be
completely wiped up immediately.
Never drop the fuel pump, especially on a hard sur-
face. Such a shock to the pump can damage it.
Draw the fuel out from the fuel tank with a commercially
available electric pump.
Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel Tank Removal).
Be careful of fuel spillage from the fuel tank since fuel still
remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump. Plug the fuel pipe
of the fuel tank.
Turn the fuel tank upside down.
Remove the fuel inlet hose [A].
Unscrew the fuel pump bolts [B], and take out the fuel
Do not pull the leads of the fuel pump. If they are
pulled, the lead terminals may be damaged.
Discard the fuel pump gasket [A].
