How do you replace the Fuel Level Sending Unit on a 2002 Mitsubishi Diamante?

Not sure on a 2002. But I changed mine on a 2004. More than likely, the same place. The sending unit is in the fuel tank. This is located under the rear seat. Remove the rear seat (pull tab, 1 on each side, lower front). You will see an access panel. Best to do this job when fuel tank is low. Remove the panel. Remove electrical connection, remove hoses, remove bolts. Fuel pump and sending unit all comes out together. Replace sending unit, re-install unit. Found sending unit on-line (don't remember where) 45. - 50.00 bucks) Mitsubishi dealer wanted 400.00 to replace. Good luck
