Smile Fuel tank

You do not need to remove the tank to replace the fuel pump, Just remove the rear seat base and the pump is underneath a round black metal plate which is held in with screws. Check the condition of the fuel pipe connected to the pump and replace it if needed but DO NOT use rubber fuel hose as it will rot away. Is your fuel tank really dinged or has it collapsed. Collapsing fuel tanks on e38's is caused by blocked carbon filters and the filter is located under the rear of the left hand side rear wheel arch liner, Peter
