I agree that replacing the fuel pump is nearly pleasant on these cars. Mine died at 11PM during a 10 hour drive. I had it towed to a dealership, and the next morning it worked just fine. :facepalm: Dealership wanted $400 labour to install it. I bought the new pump, drove to Sears and bought some tools and swapped it in their parking lot in less than 30 min.
My bit of advice: get the seal all set into the tank first, then install the new pump, then mess with the locking ring.
