Level Sensor, Fuel Tank, Right-Hand/Fuel Tank, Replacing

Removal

NOTE: As the illustrations in this service information are used for different model years and/or models, some variation may occur. However, the essential information in the illustrations is always correct.

Draining the fuel system and fuel tank

Drain:

Removing the left-hand level sensor

Remove:

  • the two connectors from the underneath of the left-hand level sensor
  • the left-hand level sensor from the ejector on which it is positioned.

NOTE: Secure a wire in the area of the ejector.

The wire must be sufficiently long that it reaches over to the opposite side of the tank with some excess remaining to ensure that it does not slide into the tank. The wire is needed to pull the hoses and wiring back to the left-hand side of the tank after the fuel tank unit has been replaced.

Removing the right-hand level sensor/pump

  • Grip the right-hand level sensor and pump holder and pinch the float so that it is held in its lowest position.

NOTE: Take care with the fuel tank.



Carefully and slowly pull up the holder. Carefully work the holder out.
Pull the hoses out from the tank without pulling up the entire wire from the right-hand hole in the tank.

NOTE: It is extremely important that the float arm is not broken or bent.

Remove the wire from the old level sensor and pump ejector.

Removing the right-hand level sensor

Remove:

  • the tie straps around the protective sheath, hoses and wiring
  • the net protective sheath by carefully threading it off the hoses and wiring
  • the tie strap under the protective sheath.

  • the level sensor by pressing in the two clips and pulling upwards
  • the thin pipe from the holder on the outside of the fuel tank unit
  • the wiring from the holder in the fuel tank unit.
