Ok guys well I'm going to walk you step by step to how you can Remove and install your Fuel Pump. So if you have poor comprehension skills, can't read, or have no patience, then take your shit to a shop where they can charge your ass to do it lol. But this explanation is only for the 92-95 Civic Coupe, Hatch, and Sedan.

Tools that you'll need:

Socket Wrench
10mm Socket
17mm Socket
Phillps Head Screwdriver
Flat Head Screwdriver
Pliers

So first off go and unplug your battery.


Then remove your seat, there is a bolt in the space between that and the back part of the seat, that may be a 12mm or 14mm, in my case that bolt was already removed, then tilt the seat towards you and pull, then it should look something like this.

Now there are 4 screws that's holding the plate down to car, remove those and the plate to the side, then it should look something like this.

From the picture above you'll see the Fuel Joint Hose, which is the hose to the left and the hose to the right is called the Fuel Pipe Return Hose. To make things easier on me I detached both of those from the Fuel Pump Assembly. You'll need the 17mm to pull the bolt from the Fuel Joint Hose and the pliers to pull the clamp off the Fuel Pipe Return Hose. Be mindful that there are washers on there. Now you can detach the Fuel Meter and unbolt the Fuel Pump Assembly from the car, which you'll need the 10mm socket to do so, as shown below.

You'll have to maneuver it around because it's one big piece. Once you've completed that it should look something like this.

You'll now have the whole Fuel Pump Assembly in your hand, and here comes the tricky part.

On the top part of the actual Fuel Pump is a hose connected by 2 clamps, pull those out the way and you'll have completed 1/2 of the detaching the top, now look and the harness and you'll see it's easy to pull the male from the female by removing a little secure piece that holds it in. Now make your way to the bottom of the Fuel Pump to the pouch. You can pull the Fuel Pump from the assembly.

In my case I was installing a Walbro 255 LPH :goodjob:

To pull the pouch of the old fuel pump and put it on the new on just use the Flat Head to wedge to little clamp off, but do it gently. Once completed just install it. Retrace you steps on putting it all on and you'll be good to go :goodjob:

Its best to replace the screen/filter on the end of the pump when you replace the pump also.

lol hey none taken, but seeing that it is for this section and that I've searched and didn't see it anywhere, and again that most of the guys that I know that are in here don't really know how to do it, I felt like sharing my knowledge, like how you desired to share your opinion which didn't bother me any, but felt like it was unneeded as well :goodjob:

lol yea I know. I've searched H-T and even a few EJ1 websites, using good terminology and everything. Nothing came up, this was the one that I felt was most informative, but as you can see nothing on installing fuel pump. http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=642479

The way how it mostly goes, even on H-T, search it before you ask about it, or basically do your research. In this case I did and got short handed, which led me to making this for my friends in here :goodjob:
