fuel pump replacement

Post by general67lee » Wed Jun 01, 2016 9:08 pm

I have a 2002 Volvo S60 with a plastic fuel tank, and I am (well, with the help of a friend) replacing the fuel pump assembly. There is a crack somewhere allowing fuel to leak out, one of the common issues with these cars. I attached a picture taken when we first got a look at it, you can see the top of it filled with fuel. My question is...this does not have an electronic hook-up on the top (see picture of my fuel pump) whereas all the replacements I have found so far have the hook-up on top (see other picture attached). Can I buy one of those and just not hook up anything to it on the top?

You mean the black electrical cable? I believe that one goes inside the tank

if the pump is working fine and it's just the leaky top issue, clean the sending unit well with some brake cleaner or alcohol.

Fill the plastic crosshair bit with epoxy.

enjoy $5 fix and not monkeying with the pump.
