Rover 45 1.8 - tank removal to get to pump?
As title says really. I want to replace the fuel pump on my Rover 45 (1.8 saloon) sometime as it is very noisy and I suspect it might be weak. Does the fuel tank have to be dropped or removed? I thought you could access it from inside the car as there is a metal circular cap screwed down in the boot but I removed it on a car in a scrap yard and couldnt see a way to get to the pump.
If you cant get the fuel pump out from inside the car then what is the purpose of that metal cap?
