Trying to install some DW65c pumps and do a DIY video at the same time to help others out.

It's my first time attempting something like this.


I've pretty much done every step to remove it but now i've came to the point where i need to get the whole unit out... i've gotten half out but the other seems to be stuck/mounted.


Anyone have any tips/experience? Much appreciated.


Here's a link showing the problem i came into

None of the guides online really said anything about removing it from the tank itself.

Pulled mine twice - there's really no magic fix. The best I can offer is to try and rotate the tub so the bottom portion faces towards the fender. Get the top portion out and rotate it up and toward the fender until the tub is vertical and pull straight up from there. It's a very tight fit, so be careful not to pinch any wires against the opening lip (it's fairly sharp and can strip wire insulation easily). Just takes some careful manipulation but it will come out.

Thank you.

Ended up figuring it out, going to upload the video in the morning.

The clip was really hard. But i think it may be because it's the first time.
The edges are razor sharp for sure, i used industrial rubber gloves when trying to get the clip undone and it sliced through .5mm of the rubber. Could've been nasty.

I found when doing mine it helped to push the fuel pump assembly backwards, then pull up on the clip and pull the assembly forward. Until I did that I was stuck and not able to get the clip to move.

I found putting it back in on the track the most difficult part.

Half tank??? Yeah that would suck. Even with range at 0, I was still up to my wrists in fuel.

I did it on a full tank lol!! Good thing it was warm haha still burned my skin though

Had to take a breather more than once.
Hahahhahaha did you have to use a snorkel while reaching in? And I thought just above the wrists was bad when I did mine. Glad you guys got it done and were that determined. Anyone who has not attempted this DIY will not appreciate the humour in this.

long story short. broke the car ripped out the engine slapped on bigger turbos. Car was sitting 1/2 full as work not planned. I thought it would be an easy 10 min job. I ended up with frostbite and no skin left lol.
