I've ordered a new FPR and it should be here in a few days.

How difficult is it to replace these things?

What precautions should I take before doing this job?

Thanks in advance.

takes approx. 37 seconds to change. unhook a vacuum line, unhook the return line, undo two 10mm bolts, and remove. place a bunch of rags around the return line when you undo it, fuel will go everywhere if you don't.

you should really depressurize the fuel line first. remove the fuse for the fuel pump, open the gas tank, and run the engine until it stalls. that way, you wont have fuel squirting all over the place.
