If you are talking about the electric low pressure diesel lift pump in the tank, then its a bit of a messy one, but not too hard to do.

Lift up the rear seats, and you will see a round plastic cover in the floor behind the drivers seat. Remove the cover to expose a hole in the floor. Under the hole in the floor you will see the electric pump, it has two pipes going in, and an electrical connectio.

First, remove the electrical connector, and the pipes. The pipes have a push lock to keep them from falling off in use, so you will need to compress the lock to remove them. They are pretty rigid, and there isn't a whole lot of room, so take your time.

around the top of the fuel pump is a locking ring. You need to remove this, and it is going to be pretty stiff. You may want to resort to a hammer and a broad headed screw driver!

Once the ring is loose, you will need to pull the pump up, then twist it and wiggle it free. The hole is NOT directly over the fuel pump, that would make this too easy, its actually offset to right. Make sure you have plenty of rags and wipes as there is going to be a fair amount of diesel that could drip around the interior of your car if you are not careful or prepared. The fuel gauge sender unit is also built into the fuel tank, so keep in mind the metal stalk and float at the bottom of the pump.

Make sure to remove the rubber seal from around the pump carefully as you will not usually get a replacement with the pump. Also, the plastic fuel tank can warp once the pump is removed, and if you leave it a long time, fitting the new pump can be a right Horror!

Take care with the new pump, especially the fuel gauge sender unit, dont bend the arm! Fitting is simply the reverse of removing, take extra care to ensure that the pipes are connected tightly and once fitted that there no leaks from the pipes or the collar.

This took me about 30 minutes to remove and about the same to fit the new one, but that was with numb fingers in -5 centigrade temperatures, your own results may of course vary!

Best of luck!

Can diesel fuel replace heating oil?

yes it can in a pinch but its not good to for long. the new diesel fuel has no lubercation in it and it will ruin the pump..... i speak from experience. To use it just dump a gallon of clean (no dirt or gravel) used motor oil along with 10-20 gallons of diesel fuel. It will keep the pump lubed and won't affect the furnace at all.

Does a peugeot 306 diesel engine fit a peugeot 206?

Probably could make it fit with a lot of work. Its not something i would do though, far too much to convert. As well as the engine you will need custom engine mounts, new fuel tank, fuel lines, engine wiring harness, engine ecu, display clocks. Upon this you have the fact that the 206 is a multiplexed wiring system with lots of control ECUs, so getting it to integrate with the older 306 ecu etc(if at all possible), would not be too simple. ALL THIS IS IF THE ENGINE AND GEARBOX EVEN FIT!!!! If you want my opinion, as a Peugeot technician for years, dont bother even trying.

the pump you have may be the rong one or you must use the greese that comes with the new pump and put it on the new O-ring then you must line up the tab facing the front and push down hard the pump is spring loaded so it will go down and the O- ring is a tight fit.
