Fuel pump replacement questions

So I was trying to replace my gas tank skid plate, and in the process snapped the fuel line outlet on the fuel pump. So obviously I need to replace the whole pump since its one big molded piece on top.

First of all, I can't get the plug off the old one (the electric plug)

Also, anyone have any suggestions for when I actually take out the old one? I can't really see how its going to come out.

Thanks!

My plug was crusty too but eventually got it with 2 small screwdrivers the pump comes out easy just be careful putting the new one in not to break any thing and hopefully your tank isnt 3/4 full like mine was.

P.S that sucks trying to make things better and end up making them worse that would be my middle name if there was enough room on the birth certificate !!

What year is yours? Mine is an '05, and I know they changed the fuel pump in I think '03.

Where did you put the screw drivers? I tried that...

I've been planning on doing the skid this weekend, so I ran my tank almost dry

yeah it sucks big time! An extra $250 at least, so close to $500 just to put on a new skid... fml

and now I have to figure out how to get to class 2m

I just remembered that I have the factory service manual on my computer, so that told me how to take out the pump, but not how to disconnect the electrical connector

your pump doesn't resemble the drawn pic at the bottom of this pic?


it says it's for the 1997 and later models

I'm in Westchester... what do you mean? You have a fuel pump? Cus I'm pretty sure I need the whole thing as the part that I broke is part of the whole molded top plastic piece

thanks!
