    How-To: Replace In-tank Fuel Pump 2001 TD4

    This was a much simpler job than I expected to do on the 2001 TD4 Freebie.

    The replacement in-tank pump was 185GBP from island-4x4.co.uk and arrived here in about a week.

    Land Rover reckon you need special tool LRT-19-009 to remove and re-fit the locking ring, but I found a wide-blade screwdriver and a bit of elbow grease sufficed just fine.

    It is a bit of a messy job though, as spilling fuel is pretty much unavoidable, so make sure you have plenty of rags and good ventilation.

    I did a write-up of the procedure with a few photos at In-Tank Fuel Pump Replacement | PaulP38A.com

    Cheers, Paul.

    Not as simple as it seemed...
    There is a small leak from around the top ring due to the rubber ring dropping down. Now that I have replaced the rubber ring it is nigh impossible to get the metal retaining ring to grab.
    Does anybody have a LRT-19-009 tool (see attached pic) that I can borrow or rent please? I will pay Express Postage both ways.

    thanks
    Paul.

    Fuel pump seal ring

    I have heard that the seal ring must be mounted on the pump, not on the tank, prior to reinstallation. This prevents a lip on the seal from fouling the thread as you screw it home, with or without LRT-19-009.
    Cheers.
