BMW Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

there is no info to get the wiring out. it's not that difficult, if the plastic swelled that much, replace the entire pump module

BMW Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

you have to have a special tool to release the contacts inside of the connector, without that you cannot do this.
