    I am going to replace my prepump on my 240.
    Do I access it through the back seat or do I have to remove the
    fuel tank, lower it down to get to the pre-pump?

    You access it from the trunk assuming this is a sedan. Pull the carpet back
    in the trunk floor and you'll find a rectangular metal plate. Remove that
    and you can see the bung on top of the tank. The return line has a union you
    access from under the car ahead of the tank, disconnect that there,
    everything else has hose clamps. It's tricky to get the pickup tube out of
    the tank, it's much easier if you drop the tank out the buttom but don't try
    that unless it's practically empty, fuel is heavy.

    Dear James,
    You have come to rescue me again....
    I accessed the pre-pump area, but I can not remove the "bung", it
    seems to need a
    special tool (with teeth). I will probably remove the tank in the
    morning for more easy access to
    the pump.
    Thanks again...
