When the pump fails that is when you replace it. The Pump comes as a complete module. I think it is a poor design, but it is a cost cutting issue. Most cars use a 'return less' fuel system, so there is only 1 fuel line and no allowance for a fuel filter, which means more frequent fuel pump failure, not such a great plan in my opinion.
I figured ,that would probably be the answer.Sounds right ,still concerns me.Typical of how poor engineering designs underminded our american industries
