I am showing 6 of those 8 mm bolts holding the fuel pump in place.
Please take a look at this illustration from the instructions in the manual.
Sorry for the delay, my internet seems to be slow this evening.
This is the 2wd model, if you have the 4wd model it might be different so let me know.
On the 4wd you might be pulling the wrong side pump as well.
Is it possible for you to upload a photo of what you see?
They don't rivet fuel pump assemblies into the gas tank, so I want to see what you are seeing if its possible.
I can wait, no problem at all.
The two nuts you removed are for the fuel tank pressure sensor. These other nuts should be out on the ring on the outside. Normally there are small studs that pop out, but they might also be bolts, I can't get a good look on the outside ring, but the outer ring will come off and then the fuel pump module will come out.
Yes, I am here, but it takes a second to type :)
can you tell me if this is a hole in the ring or not?
This should be the outside ring.
lol, I can't argue with you here, I don't see any nuts on that ring anyplace. I also don't see any taps that would lock it in place.
I am probably going to have to open this one back up, the pump can't just be glued in there. What you see is the top of the sending unit
is your vehicle 4wd or 2wd?
yes i did. have you tried washing off the top of the tank? i would recommend it anyhow because you dont want any of that dirt and debris to get inside
im wondthere should be screws around the edge.ering it something is being hidden by the dirt buildup the pictures are hard to tell.
what is the production date on your kia? it will be in the on the drivers door jamb... either top right or left of the sticker with the vin and barcode. just a 2 digit month and year
ok i searched my system two years newer and it looks like the outer part of the ring were the screws should be is a rubberized cap that needs to be pried off to access the screws
do it gently of course but it should come off and that wont be the seal so destroying it will not matter. the seal will be under that ring with the screws.
sorry my internet went down how have things gone.
