Installed new fuel pump - pictures

Thanks to all of you who advised me. I went to my friend Mike's place. He had an empty parking lot behind his apartment. We put the rear wheel on ramps. Mike is very experienced in working with Boeing planes. He did almost all the work, while I assisted him. Had some misadventures. Got fuel showers. But changed the fuel pump. We took step by step pictures. See a few pictures attached to this message. May be I should write up some thing. If Dan Watt is interested, I can put it up on his website. Thanks once again to all of you guys. All comments and suggestions for a future fuel pump change are welcome.

Ramesh.

New Fuel Pump and Filter

Here are pictures of the new Bosch Fuel Pump and Mercedes Fuel Filter that we put in. I bought the fuel pump from AutoHaus for around $90 each. The fuel filter from the dealer for around $59.

Ramesh.
Great camera work and the job looks well done. I am ready to change both of mine for peace of mind. Why did you change yours?
Just wondering if the car can run on one pump. Why is there 2 pumps? Anybody know?

Thanks

Needs two pumps to maintain the correct pressure for CIS to function at higher speeds. I may put it on my site, thanks!

a little tip, when doing work on the fuel system disconnect the power to the pumps and crank the engine, this will get rid of the fuel still in kept in the lines by the residual pressure valve.
