5000 series fuel pump R&R

NO SMOKING!!!!! Drive car until fuel level is 1/4 tank or less.

>Open trunk, clean it out, vacuum out dead leaves, etc.

>Place tools on left side of trunk floor. Climb into trunk, lying on your
>right side. It helps if you're not 6'4" and 300 lbs.!

>Pull back carpet at front floor of trunk (raised area). Pull from right
>side, fold it back over to the left.


At this point in the procedure I add the step of putting a blanket or tarp in
the trunk to come between me and all the sticky stuff (glue on the carpet,
stuff I've spilled, etc.) in there.  Keeps me from having to scrub so hard to
get the grime off.  Learned this trick when I did my first fuel pump.
