    Default Removing vs statesman fuel tank

    Hey all. Just wondering if it difficult to remove the fuel tank in a vs stato?. Fuel pump has shit itself and I wanna replace it and clean the tank out at the same time. Any tips?

    Get tank as empty as possible.
    While you have the tank out you may aswell replace all the Breather lines as some mybe brittle and brake just to be on the safe side be a shame if you have to do them a few months down the track.
    If you can`t get all the parts from holden go to Ezed if you have them down there.
    Get ACdelco fuel pump same as holden and cheaper.

    Delphi parts OEM holden or not?

    In the inner guard there is a metal cover which is screwed on... Once that that is removed you should see how to remove it.....
