Replacing fuel gauge sensor. Seat support in the way.

I am trying to replace the fuel gauge sensor in my 2009 Murano. I lift the back seat behind the driver and across the cap that I need to remove to access the fuel pump is a welded on seat support. Is this standard for the 2009? How do I access the fuel pump? Is my only option to remove the seat entirely, because that's what I'm thinking at this point.

Service manual says to remove the "reclining seat assembly", which looks like the picture you posted. It's bolted in based on the exploded diagram. I guess the bright side is that at least you don't have to drop the fuel tank.

Hi,

What type of problems are you having with your fuel gauge? The only reason I ask is because when my gauge goes below half a tank it starts to jump all over the place within the low half. Just wondering if the sensor is my issue!

347stang,

The symptoms you describe would be consistent with a faulty fuel level sensor.

When my guage got to the lower quarter or on the line above empty, I would get the guage moving up and down and the distance to empty giving false readings


As there are 2 sender units in the tank, I thought I'd be clever and replace the sub/lower sending unit (Part 250601AA3B). Didnt fix the issue
So looked like had to replace the other sender unit (Part 250601AA0D) but for not much more this part can be bought with the fuel pump itself (combined part number 170401AA0A).

So I ended up replacing every part in the tank
