Just the passenger side. You don't need to cut it- it will actually just pull apart as it's already perforated from the factory. Also-be careful putting the hose back on between the pump and the cover- it's a tight fit and it hurts if you slip.
The rubber cover just pulls up. - you can pull the insulation up around the rubber cover if you want- but the rubber piece just pulls out. To put it back in use a little glass cleaner on it to make it go back in place easier.
The clamps on the old pump will need to be cut off using a pair of diaganol cutters. The clamps are stainless- so they are pretty tough. Just make sure you aren't doing anything to create sparks to cut them. If you have any more questions feel free to ask- that's why we do this. --Cliff
