pictures of the 01 expedition fuel pump replacement via cutting through the floor

I want to thank everyone in this thread for all their help! Sorry i'm long over due for posting the pics!

http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...-no-start.html

Things to remember are to use that bracket as a starting point guide,
and make sure you aren't anywhere near those fuel lines, so you have
to cut in at the top first, then past the beam, and then down, and then
keep an eye on going down far enough past the fuel lines.

I've put a tape measure to help guide you if you want to do the same.

Not everyone has the tools, a helper, or the location to be able to drop the tank. For those people this is a good alternative. IMO, there should be a removable panel there from the factory anyway.

Totally agree 68.

Looks like a hatchet job with more issues just waiting to happen.

I can imagine what it looked like after sealing back up. Hopefully, no leaks into the passenger compartment.

Danny, this should go int the "what not to do" section of FTE.

With all these parts being made in china now a days..

I like knowing it's an easy job to replace it next time if it doesn't last long.

A warranty is nice, but it isn't' going to save you the labor all over again.

I agree with Alloro, and we all know he KNOWS his stuff, and he exactly nailed
it, outside, in the winter, no helper, learned a lesson about lending out my transmission jack i never got back..

and so this worked out really well for me and makes the truck easier to service
in the future should it need it.. i agree they should have put a door there.

I just replaced the fuel pump on my 2001 Navigator this week. Fortunately I had a lift and all the tools necessary for the job, especially two tall jackstands to lower and balance the (nearly full) tank after the strap-bolts were removed.

I don't really want to cut a hole in my Navigator but I would certainly consider it an option if I didn't have access to a lift.

So I don't think it was stupid to make an access hole in a 13-year old Expedition. By the way, did you see notice that he only paid $300 for it?

Seal it up and put the carpet back over it! Who cares.

Kinda reminds me of the old saying... "Do as I say, not as I do."

I did this in my mustang when I had it and now I have people that do it to theres. It is a must in those cars as the filler neck gasket is bound to break and leak every time and is a real pain to drop on your own.

Just make up an access cover and paint the cut metal. congrats for making your life easier! haha
