WARNING: Be sure to read "General Precautions" before working on the fuel system. Refer to FL, "General Precautions".


  1. Release the fuel pressure from the fuel lines. Refer to EC, "Work Procedure".
  2. Check fuel level with vehicle on a level surface. If the fuel level is 7/8 of the fuel tank (full or nearly full), draw appropriate amount of fuel from the fuel tank.

Guideline : Draw approximately 10 liters (2-5/8 US gal, 2-1/4 imp gal) from a full-tank condition.

  • In the event of malfunction in fuel pump, insert a hose measuring 20mm (0.79 in) in diameter into the filler opening to draw approximately 10 liters (2-5/8 US gal, 2-1/4 Imp gal) fuel.
  1. Open fuel filler lid.
  2. Open fuel filler cap and release the pressure inside fuel tank.

  • The tube can be removed when the tabs are completely depressed. Do not twist it more than necessary.
  • Do not use any tools to remove the quick connector.
  • Keep the resin tube away from heat. Be especially careful when welding near the tube.
  • Prevent acid liquid such as battery electrolyte, etc. from getting on the resin tube.
  • Do not bend or twist the tube during installation and removal.
  • Only when the tube is replaced, remove the remaining retainer on the tube or fuel level sensor, fuel filter, and fuel pump assembly.
  • When the tube or fuel level sensor, fuel filter, and fuel pump assembly is replaced, also replace the retainer with a new one (green colored retainer).
