Access to Fuel Pump - Plastic Panel _ 2006 C4S

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I have a 06 C4S and have a faulty fuel sender....  need to access and some info says its under battery but believe its under the plastic panel ahead of battery in front trunk.  I can see a bunch of philips screws and an odd ~ 1"x2" bracket to secure something but am unsure how to remove this.  The plastic panel to access fuel pump housing is not accessible without removing this and I don't want to force it out unless I know how it removes...

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Jon

Thanks JFP.  That's my issue... I can't get the plastic off to get to those parts.  There are a handful of philips screws... and then the odd "clip" in the photo attached.  How do I get that off?

A lot of disassembly and clips, I have never seen a step by step for this:

Thanks JFP.  I discovered that this may be unique to cabs (and targas).  I have a cab.  And the eyelet is to secure the wind deflector when not in use.  The eyelet is supposed to slide to the right with some force to remove it.  I have not tried it yet.

 

Found it here:  https://rennlist.com/forums/997-forum/925348-how-do-you-remove-the-luggage-eyelet.html

 

Which links to here:  https://rennlist.com/forums/997-forum/856811-does-anyone-know-what-this-trim-piece-is-called-and-where-i-can-find-a-replacement.html

 

Gonna try to remove it again later today and will report back for thoroughness.

 

Cheers,

Jon

There were multiple variations of this trim, different by year, model (cab vs. coupe, turbo vs. non Turbo, etc.) which is probably why there was never a clear write up.  Personally, I just put my glasses on, provide lot of light, and have at it.  None of them are overly complicated or tricky, just lots of push pins, clips, and screws that typically reveal themselves.

Thanks again.  And I did confirm that it slides off to the right.  See photos attached for those trying to figure out the same thing.  With it removed and showing slotted clips.  It's also keyed so it only fits one way.
