    Hi all, my Daddys car has a dodgy fuel pump, i have located it and opened the tank, but cant see how to remove the actual pump bit itself from the cream plastic bit in the bottom of the tank. So at the mo, i have the tank lid unscrewed and can see the wiring and pipes going into the tank, i just can't for the life of me see how to release the actual pump itself.

    Does it clip,twist what???:wtf: lol I have tried all, but don't want to force it as there maybe a special trick to removing it

    PLEASE !!!!!

    just been reading up on this sounds like the same as the A4 should take the hoses off and and wire for sender ..should be a sleeve that unscrews off the top to let you pull it out

    With daylight on my side, i looked again and find there are 2 little plastic clips holdinging it in, i put a bit of tension on the pipe, popped one clip, then the other, and out she came. WWWOOOHHHOOO.
    She is running all ready for me to borrow to collect more A4 bits hehe
