    Question Pic of fuel pump access cut under passenger seat ?

    Did a search & can't find it though I know it's gotta be here somewhere - I'm NOT dropping the Tank & yes I'll be careful - 97 Base w/ 145K miles - Thanx in advance...

    Welcome, Buck!!

    There is no access panel, but there's some discussion of cutting a hole in a different thread.

    I'm not going to paste that yet.

    Dropping the tank isn't that hard. Put the back end of the car up on ramps, and disconnect the (presumably stock) exhaust from the hangers, and let it "dangle" This gets you a few more inches to work with.

    Unbolt the tank, and let it rest on the exhaust. You should be able to reach on top of the passenger side of it, and remove the pump and basket assembly.

    It's been years since I've done this, so I forget the exact procedure, but this, or something close to it, should get the job done.



    Some good discussion on this is located here: http://www.lincolnsofdistinction.org...1862-fuel-pump

    Now, if you're still interested in cutting your way in from the top, there's some talk about it here: http://www.lincolnsofdistinction.org...me-some-advice

    Cutting into the floor with the tank still up is a bad idea. Personally i just cut the exhaust and dropped the tank in about 10min, only about $20 to have the exhaust rewelded that is of course if you cant just unbolt it.

    Also when youre in there make sure you replace the whole basket with pump, after so many winters the check valve or plastic housing can give out

    The added benefit of dropping the tank is you gain access to the drive shaft and it creates a good opportunity to replace the U joints.

    It's quicker then cutting up the car and you won't make a new hole for noise and moisture to get in.

    Red face Fpdm pn xr3f9d372 ae

    - I lucked up on the 97 & all I needed was Mustang FPDM XR3F9D372AE PN & not Fuel Pump - My 97 & 98 MK's had same PN but earlier AA version at end - On my 97 & 98 FPDM is on the outside of Passenger side Lower Trunk Hinge support behind the Trunk Liner - 2 10MM Nuts & one Connector - Plenty of cheap AD's & AE versions on Ebay - I bought an extra as IMO EVERY Gen 2 Owner should have a spare one of these in Trunk at all times~! - They are dying regularly now... 97 only has 116K miles so it appears TIME is what takes these out.

    Can the FPDM be bypassed with a toggle switch with straight 12 volts from battery?
