2012 XC60 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor replacement

Post by QuietMayhem » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:35 am

Hi all-

It has been determined that my fuel pressure sensor is bad and needs replacement. I was looking for tips and help as I have never done it before. If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated (such as already existing step by step or video). I have ordered the part, but my understanding is it may help to bleed it prior to etc., and I would like to gather as much information as possible prior to starting. I’m brand new here apologies if I’m not following a certain protocol. Thanks ahead of time for the assistance.

The procedure from Gary is good.

If I were doing the Job I would buy a replacement screw.

Part number 986201

The screw is a Torx drive and there isn't a lot of space to get to it.

If you need to you can remove the entire fuel rail to get access.

One last thought: to depressurize the system you can remove the fuse that powers the fuel pump, is in the fuse box at the passengers feet. Start the car with the fuse removed let it idle and stall, then the rail pressure should be low. (That is what the pictures are showing as far as I can tell)

Good Luck
