Transfer Pump Electrical Connector

Does anyone know how to purchase and install a transfer pump electrical connector for 1988 528e?

If not can a fuel pump without a transfer pump be installed on this model?

It is disconnected because of rust. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I am parting a e28 and if you want I have the connector. I am assuming you are talking about the wire that plugs in to the pump.

Thanks, Andy. It looks like it needs a new pump as the prongs are all but destroyed.

Where are you and how could I get that plug?

I can't get the pump out after removing the bolts. It is stuck after one inch. Any thought on that?

You will need to remove the sending unit (the four bolts on top of the pump unit) before you can remove the pump from the tank. Once the sending unit is removed you can tilt and turn the pump unit to remove it. It will not come out with the sending unit installed.
