How much does a new fuel pump cost?

How much could I save by replacing the fuel pump myself?
Fuel pump replacement is a straightforward job, but it's rather involved because it usually entails removing the car's rear seats to gain access to the pump in the top of the fuel tank. In some cases, the fuel tank may have to be removed to gain access. The seat removal method should take less than a couple of hours, but disconnecting and removing the tank can take up to five hours.
A main dealer can charge you up to around £150 for an hour's labour, which can result in a bill of £750 before you've even factored in the pump, so this is a job well worth doing yourself, with a Haynes Manual by your side (which will walk you through the job, step by step).
