Volkswagen Front Wheel Drive 1974-1989 Repair Guide

Sending Unit



On some models, the sending unit can be reached through the access panel under the rear seat. If it is not equipped with an access panel, it will be necessary to remove the fuel tank. Disconnect the wiring, unscrew the locking ring and lift the sending unit (also the pump on some models) straight out. Before installing the unit, check the condition of the O-ring; replace it if necessary.
