My 100 needs a fuel pump. The relay is good.
I was going to change it out myself, but my shop tells me that a
special tool is required to do this. Can I change the pump by
suffering through crawling around in the trunk?
Is the tool only a convenience to help deal with the poor access or is
the tool manditory?.
I would like to take the car into the shop (it is really cold out),
but it's parked in a poor place in my very steep driveway. I think it
will be harder to get it towed than to fix it myself. Any shared
experiences will be appreciated.
Only special tool I've used is my arm jammed down into the tank,
when you grab something that feels like a fuel pump, pull it out.
One item that I've taken the trouble to learn the hard way for you;
take care to route the wire such that the float doesn't get hung up
Cold weather and a steep driveway should add a few nice touches when
its time to tell your war stories. Good luck.
