2002 Jaguar Vanden Plas Q&A

2002 Jaguar Vanden Plas Question: gas tank

i cant seem to pull gas tank out far enough to replace fuel pump? does the rear seat need to come out,so i can push it? seems to be hanging up in the middle?,with the key on,should i be able to hear the pump? not sure if its filter or pump bad? -
Answer 1
if it is like a 99 vanden plas, you have to drop the rear end (diferential and brace) to disconnect the lines and then tank can be pulled out from trunk. -
Answer 2
fuel tank has two lines at the bottom. these are your pressure and return lines. they need to be released before tank will come out. late model jags will require a special tool to release hoses. any 3/8 trans./fuel line insert type tool will work (parts store). mark lines so they go back where they came out of. good luck, this job sucks. ps: lines will need to be released from underneath vehicle. ABOVE DIFFERENTIAL. -
