Hello

the lift pump is inside the fuel tank

its accessed by removing the back seat cushion and removing the access panel in the bulkhead

this will reveal the fuel pump module which includes the level sensor

I just want to know if the high pressure injector pump and the low pressure one are coded and nead computer to set up
UK Auto Mechanic: Matt, Mechanical Engineer replied 2 years ago

Hello

Ok only the injectors are coded so you can swap the pump with impunity

however on some versions of the pump the (rotary type) then you need the diagnostic tool to set the timing up , so no coding is required just some specialist tools to set it up
