    Removal Procedure
    Caution: Refer to Gasoline/Gasoline Vapors Caution in the Preface section.

    Caution: Refer to Safety Glasses Caution in the Preface section.

    Relieve the fuel system pressure. Refer to Fuel Pressure Relief.
    Blow dirt out of the fitting using compressed air.

    Attachment 10104

    Install the quick connect tool over the quick connect fitting (1).

    Attachment 10105

    Pull the connection apart.
    Using a clean shop towel, wipe off the male pipe end
    Inspect both ends of the fitting for dirt and burrs.
    Clean or replace the components as required.


    Installation Procedure
    Caution: In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury, before connecting fuel pipe fittings, always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends.
    During normal operation, the O-rings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.
    This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak.
    Attachment 10106
    Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe end.
    Attachment 10107

    Push both sides (1 & 2) of the quick-connect fitting together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place.

    Attachment 10104

    Pull on both sides of the quick-connect fitting (1) to make sure the connection is secure.
    Inspect for leaks using the following procedure:
    4.1. Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF for 2 seconds.

    4.2. Turn the ignition OFF, for 10 seconds.

    4.3. Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF for 2 seconds.

    4.4. Turn the ignition OFF.

    4.5. Inspect for leaks.
    Yea, only issue being that the tool doesn't seem to fit :/

    As it will on that end. I'm at the tank end, different fittings. In any case, I got them off.

    Which one worked, the red or blue? Or did you use something else?

    How the frick do you get the fuel line off to take the pump out? There is not enough room to get a fuel line disconnect tool in there.

    Push, squeeze the tabs and pull. You may need to twist.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    I tried everything I could think of with the tabs. Broke them off after trying to pull at them with picks. Tried using the picks from underneath, like a normal disconnect tool would work if there was room for it, and broke the nipple off the effin bucket. Too bad I only ordered the level sensor beforehand. Looks like I'm waiting till Tuesday for a whole new sender/pump unit.
