Default No Need to Buy Anything: Use Epoxy to Fix Retainer

If you have the broken piece, there is no need to buy anything. Just seat the check valve back into its well, and then use Epoxy to glue the holder back together. Epoxy is fuel resistant and stronger than the original plastic that the holder is made of.

Hints: Use brake cleaner to get any dirt, grease, oil or gasoline that may have contaminated the plastic.

Be liberal with the amount of glue that you use.

Most important--WAIT at least 12 hours for the Epoxy to cure before activating the fuel system.

Default Interesting Bracket

Hkayssi-Thank you. Interesting bracket. I thought about fabricating fabricate something similar. How does it attach? Does the self tapping screw go through the top of the fuel pump holder?

Thank you for this thread... the information was excellent and I greatly appreciate it.

We used (very carefully mind you) an air chisel and pre-mapped our cut by using a very small mirror and flashlight. We also took a few digital pics and measurements from the piece that we "can open" cut. It should go back together smooth and easy.







No animals or small children were harmed while carrying out this procedure.

Pictures of the "special ring removal" tool to follow... shortly... right Al?

Default lock ring stuck?

Any ideas for what to do if the lock ring is completely stuck shut? The thing absolutely refuses to budge.

Skypny,

Try the ring removal tool with a longer breaker bar, also, I've used a rubber mallet and "tapped" ever so slight hard as heck on the outside of the ring, and it loosened up. I've always been able to get mine off with a set of pliers spread apart and a long bar in between after tapping the outer ring...

Sno

Good Luck!

Reviving an old thread...

So my fuel pump crapped on me at 94,400 miles. I have a half tank of gas and I'm going to change out my fuel pump insert with a Walbro unit. I don't have the means (AKA: I'm tired of throwing money at the Saab ATM) to syphon the fuel from the fuel tank, so how dangerous would this task be, at 1/2 tank fuel???

EDIT: I know this is the 9-3/NG900 thread and I have a 9-5, but...euh...this is more of a "general" question that even a Honda Civic owner can ask.

Your in luck with a 9-5! They have an access hole underneath the back seat already...the procedure is basically the same as mentioned in this thread.

Do remember having a certain amount of fuel in the tank.

Before the task is complete, check that the fuel level float moves freely and that the gage reading is the same as before.
Also, run some tests on the old unit and compare them to the new....this may be interesting, and its very easy..

Thanks for the replies, dzlsabe and earthworm. I'll definitely make sure the gauge reading is the same as before and try to run some comparison tests. There's an FAQ on this procedure in the 9-5 workshop, but I found that this thread was a lot more detailed than the 9-5 one.

Soooooo...the half-full fuel tank shouldn't be a major issue then, I'm assuming...

Hey, thanks for the thread, it's helped a lot. I replaced my fuel pump but after that the car started and ran for about 30 seconds but i realized gas was flowing over from the top of the tank so i shut it off. I dropped the tank to realize one of the retainer clips was broken. I fixed this problem but now the car wont even start. I hear the fuel pump is working and everything is hooked up right... however now I noticed a small hose is split coming from the top of the tank towards the front of the car.. I don't have a picture of this hose but this is a picture of where a connector piece is about a foot after the tank...[img]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Owner/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/img][img]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Owner/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/img]
I need to know what this hose is for and whether or not this could be keeping the car from starting.. or if anyone has any ideas as to what I should do next to figure out what the problem is.
thanks for any help

Looks remarkably like the LS1 trap door mod we did on my friend's 00 Trans Am. A dremel works wonders at this. After you're done, fabricate a cover plate.

The 1" ( or so) hose appears to be for venting purposes..

Drop her again...or do it the easy way.

So the Pontiac is the same way as the Saab 900, thats GM for you...

Aaaaar...I hate my Saab. Replaced the pump, but still no fuel going to the engine. I keep hearing a clicking noise from the left-hand side of the firewall, right underneath the steering wheel; I'm thinking this click is the relay. *sigh* There's also a constant clicking noise from the fuel pump assembly. Car just doesn't want to start!!! Could this be caused by a faulty FPR????

Did you check to see if there's spark at the spark plugs?

Oh, and if your hose inside the pump falls off, you'll hear the pumping but the fuel won't be pumped out.
