WARNING
To prevent spray of fuel, purge system of high-pressure fuel before supply line is disconnected. Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive, which could result in death or serious injury. (00275a)
WARNING
Gasoline can drain from components when disconnected from fuel pump/filters/fuel level sender assembly. Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive, which could result in death or serious injury. Wipe up spilled fuel immediately and dispose of rags in a suitable manner. (00273a)
1.
See the service manual and purge the fuel supply line high-pressure gasoline, then disconnect the fuel supply line from the fuel pump module.
2.
See the service manual. Remove the seat and the main fuse.
3.
See the service manual and remove the fuel tank.
4.
See the service manual and remove the fuel pump.
5.
See the service manual and remove the low fuel level sender.
6.
See Figure 1. Install new sensor as follows:
a.
Install fuel sensor into fuel pump module oriented as shown and locating the base into the mounting hole (4) of the fuel pump.
b.
Hold the fuel sensor against the mounting tab. Look at the gap between the fuel hose and the sensor. The gap must be at least 1.5 mm (0.06 in). If gap is too small or there is contact between fuel hose and fuel sensor, rotate fuel filter approximately 3.3 mm (0.13 in) to move fuel hose away from fuel sensor. If gap is still too small, remove fuel sensor and bend mounting tab slightly away from fuel hose until gap is sufficient.
c.
Look at the gap between the fuel sensor and fuel pump wiring. The gap must be at least 1.5 mm (0.06 in). If necessary, move wiring with a blunt tool, such as a screwdriver.
d.
Secure the fuel level sensor to the fuel pump with screw (3). Tighten the screw enough to seat the fuel sensor against the mounting tab.
e.
Route fuel level sensor wiring under fuel hose and connect fuel level sensor to the low fuel switch connector on fuel pump module. If necessary use the jumper harness ( Figure 3 , item 3).
f.
See Figure 2. Secure the fuel pump wires and connectors.
