Default Replace Fuel Pump 06 Turbo

Anyone know the steps required to change out the fuel pump on an 2006 PT Cruiser with a turbo engine?

How long should it take? etc?

Thank you in advance for any assistance on this matter. :-)

The pump is inside the fuel tank, so you'll need to drop it.

It's actually not difficult, but a PITA to do. Labor intensive, but again, not difficult. We rented a booth at a local shop with a lift, raised my friend's PT and dropped his tank. His fuel filter, which happens to be part of the pump assembly, was totally clogged up with crap.

Took us about 4 hours to get it done. Two of us doing the work. Messy as hell, but still wasn't too bad.

I dropped the tank on my daughter's 04 on Sunday and will put the new pump in tonight. My pump is fastened in different than in the picts that Crewzin posted. It had a metal ring the fits tight under some tabs when turned in place. If you need to drain your tank to get it out, on mine I had to fully take it out, put it on some sawhorses and put a screwdriver in the fill tube to open a valve in the tank. Not a bad job, if it goes in as easy as it came out it would take a total of about 2 hours.

as long as its drivable, drive until the 2nd set of 'low fuel' warning chimes comes on. This will leave you with about 2-3 gals of fuel remaining when dropping the tank. If you're doing it alone in the driveway like i did, try not to press to hard on the center of the tank where the float arm rests. You dont want to bend it
