3 hours for install, not too hard with basic hand tools, nothing special needed. Ford has a pretty good write up on this but they dont cover the small details and a few tricks to make it go easy.
Good ideal to do this with a empty tank unless you like the smell of gas. I had less than a inch of fuel accross the bottom of the tank when my gauge was on empty.
You will notice the BAP in the trunk, I installed this prior to the new pumps and removed it when the new pumps went in, I should not need it at this point.
Our fuel tanks are made up of 2 sections because our driveshaft and exhaust running thru the tank, we are only dealing with the driver side pump and hat.
Start with jacking up the front passenger side of the car. If you have to use a ramp like i do,you want to make sure you do this first before pulling the fuel pump relay.
With the car jacked up, pull relay 21 under the hood, this should kill the fuel pump. Crank the engine over to make sure,the car should not start. If it does start, then it should die quickly and not restart.
Take out the rear seat by looking at the front bottom of the seat and just pushing in the plastic clips, it comes out very easy, There is one clip on each side.
Strip down the rear, pull the panel out and the spare tire.
Heres what the fuel pump cover looks like soon as you pull the seat out, there is one on the driver and one on the passenger side, we are only dealing with the driver side pump. This cover just pulls off.
Remove the lock ring with a screwdriver and hammer, my picture shows the fuel line already disconnected but its better to wait on the fuel line until the lock ring is off. New pumps come with a new gasket and lock ring, so you can abuse the old lock ring as much as you wish when trying to remove it, it does come off with small little at a time so no need to whale on it real hard.
This picture shows how to release the fuel line by just pinching the sides together and it just pops off (* do not remove the fuel line until you actually have the lock ring removed first OR it will cause gas to splash up while you are beating the lock ring off * )
When the lock ring is removed the pump will pop up, the assembly is spring loaded so it may pop up about 1 inch.
You will have to work it out, the hoses do get hung up so just work it side to side. Looking at this picture you can see the passenger side fuel line connected to the main fuel pump.
To remove this hose, just push down on the green tab and it will pop right off.
Inside the tank you can see the passenger side line.
Side by side,old and new.
Side by side again.
Looking inside the tank you can see a tray that the pump sits in, when you install the new pump you have to make sure the float is outside that tray and facing the passenger side.
Getting the new pump in is not easy, it takes alot of wiggeling and squeezing but it will go if you are pateint. Start with the pump on its side and the float going staight into the tank. You dont have to worry about the passnger side fuel line too much, it will be in the right spot when you get the pump in and you will be able to grab it. Once you get the float in, twist the whole pump towards the passenger side, making sure the float will clear the tray inside the tank. You will have to squeeze the hoses from side to side to get the pump down in the hole.
With the pump down in the hole, the passenger side hook up will be at about 2 "O" clock.
Just push the passenger side hose on until it clicks.
