I don't see one here. The instructions in the Service Manual aren't too bad, but the owner of PTCrew.com, SnittyKitty, has posted one heck of a great Fuel Pump Replacement Tutorial over at PTCrew.com.

Go check it out, photos and all!!! Now I believe the fuel filter is part of the pump assembly, but I could be wrong....

Okay, I take that back, while the process that I listed from PTCrew is what you will need, the filter is non-serviceable. Per the '04 OEM Service Manual:



So, if you are sure you have a clogged/bad filter, you have to replace the whole pump assembly!

Probably could clean it out when you get to it.

It has a sock in the bottom, remove the bottom and back flush and blow out with compressed air.

Oops, I just noticed I read this wrong, Koch's original post was about fuel pump, not fuel filter, so the tutorial over at PTC is right on. Course her's is an older model PT, so not sure what model is Koch's. Pretty much they are all the same, I think....

what do you need that for to replace the fuel pump? to release the fuel pressure?
IF YOU'RE DOING THIS ALONE, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE TANK AS EMPTY AS POSSIBLE. it's hard to manuver it the tank with fuel in it.
i did replace mine but dont recall the procedure. i was thinking..<~scary eh?
pull the gas cap. pull the fuel pump fuse. start car. run out of gas, crank it a few times until it wont start. remove -neg battery cable. drop tank. when dropping the tank, be carefull not to press on the center where the round depression is. this is where the float sits and you run the risk of bending/breaking it if you push to hard in this spot. carefully unhook electrical and fuel line connections

the car wont start as it is so I'm assuming their isn't any fuel in the lines but you can never be to careful. going to start working on it in a little bit once its warmed up out side todays high 66! yes! lol but thanks for all the help just trying to find out how big of a job it was to take the tank out, i had a Chrysler Concorde and it was horrible to take the tank out of it lol but this seems like it isn't going to be bad

I did the fuel pump in a 92 exploder 4x4 myself. 6 months later the dam thing went again and I got rid of the truck. laying on my back holding that tank with my feet and hands, even my head when putting it back in. wow. lost 3 days of work doing the job and the pain I felt when done haha
