I own a 1998 V70 AWD which is similar to the XC70. The XC70 is also all wheel drive requiring the rear cross member and rear differential be lowered in order to lower the gas tank. The fuel level sensor is mounted in the front of the gas tank and cannot be removed until the gas tank is lowered. The fuel level sensor is on the left side and the fuel pump assembly is on the right. This is a job best left to professionals as a vehicle lift and special equipment is required such as a lifting table and post jack to lower the rear end and the gas tank. I am a Volvo Technician and in the process of replacing a fuel pump in a 1999 XC70.

Front drivers side of the engine. Behind the alternator. Hard to see and get to. It has a white plug with one wire. Fords oil pressure sending units are not real sending units.
