Loosen the nuts on the top and bottom of the bracket that holds the fuel pump in place. Slide the pump out of the bracket.

Slide the new fuel pump into the bracket in the same orientation as the old pump. Tighten the nuts on the bracket, so the pump is secured in place. Reinstall the fuel lines onto the fuel pump. Tighten the hose clamps. Remove the locking pliers from the lines. Reconnect the fuel accumulator, if applicable. Reconnect the electrical connections that go to the pump.

Reinstall the wheel. Lower the vehicle to the ground. Reinstall the gas cap. Reconnect the cable to the negative battery terminal. Turn the ignition key on and off several times to prime the fuel system and start the engine to ensure that the pump is working correctly.
