the fuel pump in a 91 playmuoth laser is inside the fuel tank. you have to drop the fuel tank and remove the wiring, and pull it out. you might want to check wiring and fuses and reley first tho, i just replaced mine and the realy broke. but if so its a big job. 2+ ppl

What you have to do is, like the above said, is drop the tank. You don't have enough room to work when it's on the car.There are two straps running parallel to each other, there are 4 bolts, 2 in front and 2 in back, you will need a deepwell 14mm or 9/16 socket to remove the bolts.The pump has one connection and it easily disconnects. And don't forget to remove all the lines including the filler hose,vent tube,fuel line to the pump,the return line and the line to the motor on the front of the tank. When it's out, the screw's holding the fuel pump to the tank are Philips head, the dumbest design, anyway, if you can't get them off, you will need to chisell them off and remove the studs with a pair of visegrips.When you get new bolts, I recommend bolts you can use a socket on. It also would be best to get brass bolts and only get them as long as your previous one's. When the bolts are off, many people think the pump just comes out. In many cases yes, but another design flaw, you will need to try and push the bottom of the pump back into the tank. I know, sounds rediculous, but there is a rubber at the bottom of the tank that keeps the pump in place and no matter how hard you pull, it's not coming out, I learned the hard way. At the bottom of the pump, it slides out from under the rubber and the pump comes right out. Instalation is the reverse of removal. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Hope I could help.

Plymouth does not use inertia/reset switches. The fuel system is computer controlled with relays.

. Disconnect and remove the battery and the battery box. Remove the upper IC pipe (If turbo'd) and throttle body elbow. Now you can see the fuel filter

The fuel pump fuse on a 1991 Plymouth Laser is located in the engine compartment's fuse box. It prevents the fuel pump from being damaged by an electrical surge.
