I’m in the process of replacing the fuel pump in my 2002 C2. The Fuel Level Sending Unit above the pump came out with some juggling to free it and disconnect the fuel lines to the pump. When I upended the unit on my work bench, about a cup of dirty black gas came out.

I know Porsche redesigned the punp and sender in 02 eliminating the fuel filter. Now I’m wondering is the newer (and much larger) Fuel Level Sending Unit has a non-serviceable filter built into it and that’s why I saw residue in the gas that drained out of it.

Does anyone know and also, not wanting to send dirty gas downline, should I be thinking about replacing the sender?

Thanks

What you probably saw is the silt and debris from the tank that the built in filter stopped before it got to the pump.

Thanks for the reply JFP. I went right out to my garage and put everything back together. Very happy to be back on the road again.
