Undo the hood clips as though you are lowering the hood.
Start to let the hood fold away but at the suitable point stop.
Raise the hood rear metal cover & hold in place, likewise the rear of the hood to
push the hood forward out of the way.
Inside this compartment is a carpet retained by various parts.
I cut it in a suitable way to get at the plate & fasteners below it.
There is a metal plate, remove it and access to the pump is below that.
Squeeze the fuel pipe connection to ease it from the top of the pump & tuck out of the way.
Unscrew the retaining ring and the pump assembly can be carefully lifted out.
It's tight & maybe carefully lever from either side.
Be careful of the float for fuel level, the assembly lifts out with a careful turn of the unit.
The pump unit can be part dismantled, careful when handling the float or the fuel gauge might not work or be accurate. I removed the bottom part of the outside pipe of the fuel
reservoir collector part.
I found under the pump fine mesh filter inside the fuel collector that so much fine material had built up that it stopped the pump sucking the fuel into the pump.
My car had done so little mileage for 6 or 7 years that fuel must have evaporated leaving the
fine material residue.

Not something I'm actively looking to do, but something that I'd be interested in looking into depending on what we talk about here.
Has anybody fit any custom or third party seats in their GTV? I'm a tall bloke and would like a lower seat, and after coming across the custom 916 seats...
Hi everyone, I need to find some parts for rear suspension, nearside, for my Alfa Romeo GTV Cup (number 53)
Does anyone know where I can get these parts from? (I have the serial numbers if needed)
Thanks in advance!
I have developed an oil leak on my 97 916 Spider Twinspark, which I am thinking is caused by the much talked about balance shaft seal failiure. A mojor job to replace. If I removed the belt for the balance shaft, would they still leak oil?
I'm planning on changing the fuel filter on my 1998 phase 1 GTV (2.0TS). With it being a phase 1 it has the external "canister" style filter underneath.
I've read the workshop manual and it says to remove the fuel pump system relay and run the car till it stalls to depressurize the fuel system...
