Hi guys, been a while since ive been here.. Anywhoo, my subaru has been having fuel pump issues so I pulled it out today and found out that one of the harness connectors that plugs in to the bottom of the fuel pump harness connector on the inside of the tank side was burnt. I have been looking all over the internet and I cant find that harness connector anywhere to replace it. does anyone know where I can find one or if there is a way I can just repair the one I got? Its pretty bad but It still plugs in. Thanks alot!

Burnt wires in the fuel tank... that's a scary thought!


Probably 99.9% of the time a spark in the tank couldn't ignite the fumes, but that 1000th time...

Junkyard is your best bet.

If those are just spade terminals you can clip the wires, crimp new spade terminals on and plug them in without the plastic housing. Just be sure to tighten up the terminals with some pliers before plugging them in to prevent a loose connection issue in the future. Skrink wrap the ends, or buy spades with shrink already on them.
