99 1.0 Fuel pump removal - johnreeves
Does any kind person out there know how to take the fuel pump out. I have got the inspection cover under back seats open and the pump is held down by a large ring nut. I have tried to move it with no sucess. Having to replace due to return connector leaking very badly. Any help greatly appreciated.

Is it the pipe from the pump that has broke?
i assume yes as they go brittle and break as you try to change the fuel filter
you have to push the metal circlip down as you hit it anticlockwise with a screwdriver type tool
i cant remember if you have a plastic large ring to unscrew first
can you post a photo to remind the old brain
be careful of sparks and whatever you do when you fit a replacement be careful with the clips as a new pump used to be $200
if buying a s/h pump be aware this too will be brittle
