I meant to mention this TH, this is priceless, and I like the way you think !! I was working on a friends VW a couple of years back and we thought the fuel pump went (this one actually had 2, one in the tank and one up front). We were trying to diagnose it and were contemplating dropping the tank when we came up with the same idea. So we pulled the back the back seat out and behold ! VW had thought of putting in an access plate ! Oh yeah, and it was the fuel pump !

Re: Car Maintenance Question

Funny but the bimmer had an outline stamped in the sheet metal where I was going to cut anyhow, as if they intended to do it or at least were giving you a hint.

Imagine me and a drill chanting "please dont puncture the tank...please dont puncture the tank..."

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
