Removing "Fuel Pressure Regulator"

Ref: Jeep Wrangler Sport 2002

OK... I have the tank down, wires and pipes securely removed, and full access to the fuel pressure regulator. I also removed the small strap on top of the regulator that holds it down. But now I am stuck, I can rotate it fine (a little bit, since the plastic guides on the frame prevent full rotation). I do no want to force it off with a screw driver (unless I have to). What am I doing wrong?

Carl

PS: Could it be pressure still in area preventing its easy removal? What needs to be done now with the tank removed?

If you removed the fuel line, there is no pressure in the fuel line.

Check my write up and see if you can figure out what you are doing wrong. It is hard to tell what you are trying to do.

If you are trying to remove the regulator, just pull it off. This is how it looks after the regulator removal.


HTH,

It just pops out once you have the top steel retainer strap off. I inserted a pair of big flat blade screwdrivers underneath it on both sides and popped it straight up and out.

Ahhhhhhh, I bet I need to put a little more force into it then, using large screwdrivers. I was afraid to put any force for the fear of breaking something. I was expecting it to just easily slide off after the strap removal

Plus there is a big fat o-ring at the bottom of the regulator that seats into a groove in the tank opening so that is also holding it.

UPDATE: The replacement regulator I ordered from the Jeep Dealership worked perfectly. For some reason the one from Autozone is the one that gave me problems going in happily (I think the brand was GP Sorensen).

Thanks all for the great advice.
