Default Is there a write up for this?

I am curious if someone has a write-up for changing a fuel pump for a 96 legacy outback.

I'm sure it's pretty straight forward but I dont wanna drop the tank and forget to remove a line and bend it. Thanks

You don't have to drop the tank, it's right on top, accessible under the carpet in the storage area. This goes for the wagon and the sedan, sedan is more difficult to get to, because you're gonna need to get in the trunk for this one. and if you are tall, it sucks.

-Release fuel pressure, just open the gas cap, stick a long screwdriver to open the flap.

-There are two oval accessholes, take the one on the right off, and you can see your gas tank. The hole on the right is your fuel pump, one on the left is the fuel sending unit I believe....

-Unplug the harness, take the lines off, take all the small nuts out...it may be pretty rusted, use some good anti-seize if you are afraid of breaking the studs.

-Carefully pull the pump out, its a little awkward to pull out, just do it gently, and manuever it side to side, every which way to get it out.

There you go, just do the reverse for installation. Also, be sure you have the smallest amount of gas in the tank so you don't stank up the car too much. Also clean off the top of the tank before removing anything, mice love to store nuts and stuff up there, be sure none of that gets in the tank.

Uh, that does not release the fuel pressure of the fuel system, only the tank? One way to release fuel pressure is to disconnect the harness for the fuel pump, and then crank the starter on the car for a little bit.
