Yeeeeah that's not factory at all. See if you can get a original fuel pump and remove that blue wire, it seems that the previous mechanic put an aftermarket fuel pump in the fuel pump housing itself.I bought one with code h226wk, I think that could be imported, its so high cost here.
Thinking about fuel, pressure, pump... the last owner adaptaded the fuel pump, and her mecanic make two hole on that squared on the top of fuel pump to pass the wired of pump (I don't understand why he make, but I don't have tool to open), and I think this could be losing pressure inside the tank, I put now some glue to close this hole, I will wait to try start again.
I'm angry, so many adaptations on this vehicle, but just 40k miles, I will make she back new again.
See what he done...
For sure I need change It.

Can't you buy any cheap w163 fuel pump, even on eBay? Surely they must be able to ship to your country?
