    Fuel Pump Replace Guide

    I can't help you with which page but start from the beginning as I did it a while ago.

    It's fairly easy once you get started. Try to empty your tank as much as possible before you start the job or you'll be high as a kite on the fumes!

    Cheers Westy started skim reading your thread from page one then found my self reading through it properly to page 19 where the fuel pump change was looks pretty easy so ill order a new pump from ECP and fit it my self.
    Ill have to take it upto Bills once fitted and put it on the dyno again, hopefully it will make more the 230hp this time.

    So i got a phone call from ECP this morning to collect a VDO Fuel pump which cost £168 with the 20% discount code, bonus.
    Only have road parking here in Bristol and no tools as im staying at my Girlfriends, so decided halfords car park was ideal in case of needing extra tools, clips etc.
    Anyway managed to change the pump, was a little bit tricky getting the pump out and detaching the pipes.
    Took a minute to start the car but then was all fine.
    On the way home i opened her up and my god does it go, feels like a whole new car.

    Great stuff mate. Halfords carpark is a cracking idea too haha.

    Did you empty the tank as much as poss before attempting this? Bit of a smelly job isn't it!

    That's just genius. Shame the Halfords near me is next door to the main police station. Don't think that would go down well with the rozzas.
