  1. Loosen the fuel filler cap in order to relieve the tank pressure (do not tighten at this time).
  2. Raise the vehicle.
  3. Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector.
  4. Lower the vehicle.

  7. Connect the fuel pump electrical connector.
  8. Lower the vehicle.
  9. Disconnect the negative battery cable in order to avoid possible fuel discharge if an accidental attempt is made to start the engine.
