Did this video help you?

Greg Abate: Very helpful! I'm only reading about 6 volts from the fuel pump connection (battery is charged and reading 14v). Pump is new and car still won't start. Wondering if it has something to do with this low voltage reading. Any ideas?

Marty Meyer: Getting ready to go this now on a 01 325i. VDO/Siemens manufacturers this part for BMW. You can save $30-$50 buy ordering on a BMW online parts specialist like ECSTuning or BavAuto.com, instead of buying from a dealer. I would also advise to replace the fuel pump gasket, it's another $19.00 on top of the $180 for the pump, but it's 10+years old, and I don't want to open it up in there and find out it's deformed or just rotted. There is also a $2 gasket part no. 1614 1183 543 on the in tank hose that attaches from the jet pump to the fuel pump. If you mess up the hose connector clip thingy, you can use a generic hose clamp, which will make it easier to do 60,000 miles from now when you do it again. The "jet pump" moves the fluid between both sides of your tank. Save yourself a boatload of money! Does this yourself. You only need a 10mm ratchet, screwdriver, and wire cutters. E46Fanatics has a step by step available with photos but no video, if you think you need it. If your not a member there and own and E46 you need to be. Not much a DIYer with NO mechanic skills can't fix on these cars, if you can follow directions.

Juan Arias: Good Job. Very helpful. Thank you so much.

yxTbl: салон прикольный )

jeremiah barnes: Does this also work with a 2001 Chrysler Sebring lxi my girl pump is also located under the rear seat from what I am told if you could help me out I wouldn't much appreciate it

Ellen Cosgrove-Cuneo: Thanks so much very helpful!!!

Marty Meyer: Well done video. In most enthusiast circles this item is considered a Preventative Maintenance item, in other words, it's going to fail sooner or later, either at the car's convenience or your's. If original, they are 10 years old at least, estimated lifespan is 60K miles, I would also advise on changing the filter underneath the car as well, quite a few video are available on YouTube. Dealers and some independents charge as much as $1,000, the part can be had for $150 and is an easy DIY. You will have less chance of issues,if you reinstall the big round black seal/gasket onto the tank, instead of the pump, before reinstalling the pump. there are more than a few reports of difficulty reinstalling the pump and vacuum leaks caused by misinstallation of that gasket. It's not difficult, you just need to make sure you're reinstalling correctly.

4272005: Didn't you miss a nut on the fuel pump cover ?

David Girond: Hello from Spain, great video and very well explained..Thanks a lot. I need Help on my BMW x5 3.0i Aut. 231cv (2003), the gas needle is always in reserve, i filled the tank to see if the needle moves and nothing at all. What can i do ? please!!! Ive looked under the back seet and cables are ok. Thankyou ever so much..appriciate the future help...

Ronnie Juhan: Hi, Is it necessary to buy a fuel pump with a leveling sensor?

800lb Gorilla: I have an unusual issue on an e46 where the fuel gauge will read empty until the tank is around 7/8ths or 3/4ths, then it will read fine down to E. Fill up the tank and it'll remain at E until it burns back down to about 7/8ths. The pump in the car now was installed by a dealer, I haven't pulled it yet to see what happened but my best guess is there is something physically interfering with the level, or, the aftermarket pump isn't sending the right voltages for the gauge to display fuel level properly. Anybody encounter something like this before?

86CJ74U2NV: Ed, You are freaking awesome! I knew my pump was out and was getting ready to drop the tank. Then I decided to eat some lunch and search for a video on it. Thank God I came across your video.

Rumplemenz: Thank you bmw. Finally i get to replace a fuel pump without having to drop the gas tank..!! Thanks for the vid. I am tackling this job in next few days

Javier Castro: Awesome video!!! But how do I reset it so it reads the right amount of gas it has in the tank. Mine is a 2004 325i and the tank is full but its not reading it correctly...... I just had it changed today, the pump ai mean.....

Juan Colome: great video - would this also apply to a 2002 325i ? I mean the fuel pump being in back seat ?

Dan Stone: Thanks for the video Car wouldn't start this morning bad pump. One thing I would change put the rubber gasket on the tank first pump slides in easier

Ana Guerrero: am i puting the pump in wrong if it keeps poping up 

David Chastang: My '95 325is has been sitting for about 8 years. I just got a new battery and it is turning over but won't start. I'm not sure if the pump is working, didn't test it but I will now. I think it may be out of gas too. There wasn't much in the tank when I stopped driving it, I'm wondering if gas evaporates over time.

djchaney1: My '06 330i has just started being hard to crank... it is worse some days than others. It seems like it might be harder on cold days, but I am not sure. Also, when it gets close to half a tank it will start skipping really bad. It always stops when I fill the tank up. Any ideas? Thank you so much! : )

Rachel Belanger: So my 2003 325i is having the same exact starting problem as yours did, so i did the voltage test you did, except mine read at about 4 volts. I'm pretty sure the problem is the fuel pump, but if you could tell me if you think it may be something else considering the voltage. Thank you, and your video is very helpful.. please reply when you can thanks

Sammy B: Thanks man it works was having hard time the mechanic was so slow and make me wait and ask me for so much money its working now thank you . if someone looking to fix it himself too (be sure pedal some gas after instaling it and look again on it some ruber if its not tight leaks out gas thats what happen to me i did take it out and tight the ruber again be sure you tight the ruber)

Ed Mathews: I just had the dealer do this on my 2003 325i. Cost was a thousand dollars. What a rip off. I was so done with that car that I sold it right after that. I handle most of my repairs myself, but I did not diagnose the fuel pump issue, and felt stupid after they told me what it was.

Eugene Bruno: Hey, I just watched your video--which is very informative. I just learned something new. I have a problem, I purchased my 2003 BMW 325I (manual) 2yrs ago and it drove ok. But I have realized they hardly kept up with maintenance. But my problem is, my BMW does not drive like a BMW. It does not accelerate with power when I step on the gas; it feels like it struggles to move, like it drags. Basically, it does not move with power like BMW's are supposed to. What you guys know what is wrong with my BMW?

arsenio ovs: thank you for video, Im a big Fan of EdzGarage

V0ree: Thank You so much EdzGarage! I just replaced fuel pump and I had a problem: installing the new one it does not fit exactly, the solution: remove rubber ring from the pump and push into the other rubber ring that surrounds the hole, so the pump's seal can stuck during installation.

hamoda ali: thank you buddy you saved me $400 back in 2011 and it was my firs DIY, since that time I never been in a mechanic shop if so just to know which part is bad and go home and fix it , thanks again because you made me believe in my self and save my money , god bless you bro 

Chris Villarreal: Is it the same procedure on a 2004 bmw 325ci? 

joe smith: FYI: This video does not apply to BMW's SULEV vehicles. These low-emission vehicles have a completely sealed metal gas tank and the fuel pump is sealed inside the tank. The only way to replace the fuel filter, is to replace the entire gas tank. BMW offers a 15 year, or 150,000 mile warranty on these vehicles' gas tanks. The dealers may tell you this warranty is only good in California, but that is not correct. The warranty covers ALL vehicles regardless of the state you reside. Go here for more info: http://chrisparente.com/2011/07/14/wisdom-of-the-crowd-saves-bmw-sulev-owner/ 

Jack Tompkins: Thanks for the video! made it really easy...

g3w3hr: Excellent video! I watched this and then successfully diagnosed and repaired my own fuel pump in my 2002 325i! You are a great man and this is a great video, kudos!

Michaela Sorenson: Is this the same for 2004 325i?

Allyson Myers: I have a '01 325i. When I try to fill the gas tank, after a few seconds gas comes pouring out from under the car. I can't find anything on the web about it. Can anyone help please? And the fuel gauge doesn't read full and the gas isn't overflowing out of the tank opening where you put the hose. Help?!

charles dukes: Thanks for the video man Ur truly a life saver 

Rene G. Solis: I can't seem to get that pesky clamp off, how'd you guys get it off? I've been fighting it for an hour and it won't come off and I ended breaking the tip off. Thanks for all the help btw! 

Zander Images: Ed, my mechanic gave me an estimate of $770 to replace my pump. I purchased the unit on Amazon for $115 with next day shipping. Add to that $80 for a two day car rental and $120 for a long distance tow and I saved about $455 SPECIFICALLY because of your well explained video. I really appreciate the assistance and the time you took to create this instructional video. -A huge fan in NJ. Note: The electrical jack slides back then pulls up. To put it back slide the bracket back again and then push it down. Then push the slider forward to lock.I had to watch the video again to get this right. Also, make sure you have clamps before you start the replacement. I could not reuse my clamps and had to run to the auto parts store. I used Autocraft 9/16"-5/8" Part #AC52F16V.

platipus79: What was your meter set on, and what sockets in the connection did you plug it in to? Its a bit hard to tell from this vide, but its excellent none the less.

Dustoff85: Question, I just paid $980 to replace pump and labor,I think I was just taken to the cleaners. What should this fix have cost me? I took it to Eurotech import car service thank u

Patrick Q: Bro, you just saved me about $1500 bucks at the dealer. I was having the same exact issue. Watched your video, did all the tests prior, no power to the pump. Checked fuse box, then pulled seat checked pump. Nothing. Called NAPA, $230 for new pump (here in Hawaii everything is a little more expensive). Followed video, straight running smooth again. Thanks bro!

Dustin Tate: That other wire the older model have wire the fuel pump side and the return I think its the fuel gauge. Great video thanks for showing me the access too the fuel tank

Ulf Sivertsen: Gents….didexactly what EdzGarage showed in this video – pleasant and easy to do! Few things need attention: • DO NOT try to start or turn the ignition on to check or listen to the old pump when it is demounted – the left hand side overflow pump will pump fuel through the pipes and into the car! • Remember to buy a clamp for 1,2 to 1,6mm, (for the rubber hose) if it not comes along with the pump. • The large o-ring that, secure the pump to the right place in the thank, must be easy to install and tighten up as showed in the video be aware of dust, rust and wear/deterioration. IMPORTANT: The sealing ring should be seated on the inside edge of the gas tank with the flat lip portion of the seal resting on top of the tank and the rest of the seal protruding inside the tank. Once the seal is properly in place the pump assembly can be slid the last couple inches into position with the last half inch giving a satisfying "thump" as the pump squeezes into place in the seal and the pump flange hits the seal and gas tank. It is easy-peasy to screw down the locking ring with the seal properly in place whereas it was almost impossible to do so with the seal fully outside the tank and getting squished between the tank and the pump flange Case: 2002 e46 330i, 182.000km (appx 110ts/m) the car went suddenly “dead” (funny enough on the gas station). Original spare part/fuel pump from BMW cost DKK 2.200,. BMW Labor cost per hour DKK 1.500, 2,5 hour + pump total cost appx DKK.5.900,-/1.100$ Europe OE-quality spare part DKK 873,-and 2,5 hours’ work (next time it will only take me 1 hour). Savings appx DKK 5.000,-/900$. Gentlemen - great thanks to this video, great thanks to EdzGarage. Ulfsiv, Denmark, March 2014

Lee Thorley: Excellent video.. many thanks

tcphoto: I wish that mine went in as easily as yours. It's important to install the gasket first and then the fuel pump.

EliasTheHunter: My 02 325i is in this same situation! 150,000 miles, original pump. The stealership wanted $1,240. I spent $164 for the fuel pump and gasket. I'll get a filter/regulator when it's running again. Thanks for the tutorial!

Patrick Galvao: Very helpful video, I was having the same exact problem and fixed it myself for $70 thanks to your video 

james duffy: Thank You!

Abdullah Almatar: hello, I have x5 2007, I have this problem only with very cold weather, so If I put the car inside the garage then will start, but if I put the car outside just for 2 or 3 hours it will crank but no start. now in Arlington, Virginia the temperature is 27 degree, so the car will not start, even when the temperature 36 degree, will not start just cracking. I just change the battery. any suggestions please. 

RRSYS.info - Roulette Prediction: The wire you ask whats it for may be for the diesel models

Darrell Wolfe: You know you forgot to tighten the fourth nut right? 

Laur Iordache: Thank You from the bottom of my heart. This video really helped me a lot.

As for the quality of the video, you obviously don't read the comments as I shared that I am NOT a camera expert. Believe it or not, some people require plans to be able to build a structure and I am glad that you are not one of those. Thanks for watching and good luck with your future Trolling endevours.
