Re: Fuel Pump Replace

That would be a fuel pulsation damper . There is a hex nut on the under side of it . Iím not sure what size it is as Iíve never had the pleasure of having to remove one , thank the Lord . Itís California only I think . Iím sure someone with experience with it will chime in. You might could get it removed with a crows foot and some patience, by the looks of the picture.

Re: Fuel Pump Replace

i should be 1 1\8th i believe pulse dampener is a cali thing. you may have to pull the turbo to get to it with the dampener on there.

Re: Fuel Pump Replace

The nut is 1 1/4". Some have been able to remove the pump without removing the turbo on a California model and some have just removed the turbo to avoid the frustration of it being in the way. It also helps if you heat the wrench up a little and put a bend in it to get it onto the nut.
