joel mcdonald: Just a note: for safety, I always use a brass screwdriver or drift when I hammer the lock ring because a steel screwdriver can make a spark if you hit it just right and cause it to glance the ring.
cwoolcat: Nice video. Really nice. Thank you.
Cessna5296Q: thank you so much for this tutorial this fixed my car and I can't thank you enough
Jessie Bustos: Your SES light is on
Jessie Bustos: Did you have to disconnect the battery when you did this ?
b1lf: You should have replaced the gasket, but otherwise, excellent DIY! Thank you.
Jt Mora: is this in all bimmers? or just newer ones? I m trying to figure out where mine is in my 94 530i. Would it be in the gas tank or in the back seat? trying to change it in the morning?
Robert Laugherty: Did anyone ever figure out what that extra wire pigtail was for???? I just changed my e46 330 cabriolet and I have this same wire to nowhere...ITS KILLING ME TO KNOW WHAT THIS IS!!!
mdiaztattoo: what's on the other side of the tank the in back of the driver seat ? my bmw is leaking from the opposite side ur working on
Shari Roy: Thank you so much. It was such a great video that I was able to change my fuel pump myself at 55 hahaha. It is running like a dream again. The hardest part was I put the rubber seal around the top of the new unit and fought with it to get it seal. I finally realized it should go around the other rubber seal and then the unit popped in and I was able to tighten the ring back down. Really appreciate you taking the time to do such a great video,
Petteri Tulonen: Thanks you sir!
Ovidiu Moc.: prior to working on the Fuel Pump, did you release the pressure out of the Fuel Injection Pump system, or it`s NOT necessary ???
Quint Jer: Good work on the video with the details etc. I Did my pump this weekend. I also replaced the fuel filter which is a little harder to get to under the car. When I drained the fuel from the filter is was absolutely nasty. Good work and thanks again.
Sebastian Ramirez: Would this work on a e31?
Daniel Miles: I think mine might be bad. My 330i doesn't start and sounds just like the beginning of this video. Turns over, just doesn't start. BUT... I do smell gas. Would I smell gas if the fuel pump was bad?
Jeff Hancock: I have a 2004 Beetle with a fuel pump under the rear seat and I've been priming the cylinders since last summer by turning the key to the on position for 5 seconds, 5 times and then starting it. Now, it just stalls after it burns off that gas. I turned the key to the on position and tested for voltage across various pins but they were jumping around. Do I really have to test for voltage since I already replaced the fuel pump relay and the fuel filter but still the same problem. What do you think?
Fadi Matti: How do still having power on the fuel pump conecteor when the car is off , isn't supposed the realy to cut the power after 2 or 3 second pf turning the ignition on ?
