But, the brand new fuel pump assembly, required an Adjustment for the Float Lever sensor, in order to fuction properly, because it came from factory way too tight somehow; so I disassembled that lever sensor to check if it was alright and reasembled everything back, letting the lever arm to move freely as it should.

Thank you so much, my Friend!

I don't know how to embed videos here, in this Forum, yet.

Here you can see how free is the movement of the sensor arm.

Kind Regards.

Something pretty interesting, regarding the new fuel Pump assembly swap, is that, somehow the Low Fuel warning light, at the instrument cluster, came back again to function; because I've lost that warning light function when I did the instrument cluster Swap, years ago...

I did that cluster swap then, (without the need of changing anything on the wiring nor plugs), to gain Tachometer which the original cluster didn't have; and the only thing lost then, was the warning light for the low fuel.

Since such warning light came back to life Flawlessly with the new Fuel Pump Assembly, I believe that the wiring is different between the fuel pump assembly for the basic model and the fuel pump assembly for the luxury model... somehow.

So, the problems with the Fuel Pump and the non-functional low fuel warning light, were solved by changing the old one with the new fuel pump assembly; thanks to God.

In another Subject; as I wrote some posts ago, the plastic from the wiring terminals in this Sephia, are crumbling away, making connection problems in some sensors; the most recent fail was the terminal for the Knock Sensor, which crumbled away, letting the wiring to hang down disconnected...

So, part of the Box pictured some posts above, was a set of brand new Sensors, which came along the new fuel pump assembly, from RockAuto, including a new Knock Sensor:

So, I took advantage of a discount coupon at RockAuto and bought all the sensors I could, at once ...

Someone asked me This, in another Forum:

Thanks for all your recent postings here.....But is this due to sheer boredom from your area's Covid restrictions that you're posting so? 

No, it isn't due to boredom at all...

...in fact, this thread is a Binnacle to keep up with our "KiaStein" history; if you take a look, you'll see that this thread has kept updated for more than a decade so far. B)

I've been posting, sharing my inventions, creations, adaptations, modifications, retrofittings, repairs, etc... online since 1999 also in some other web forums; the reason is to share ideas for all the people who might benefit from them.

Like me, there are many persons who also contributes with helpful ideas online, which had helped us a lot, so I wanted to do my part, because in order to find useful information, someone have to share it...

Finally there is another reason: This binnacle saves time, because if you want to find the proper part number for a repair, you'll find it written here, along with detailed photos of all the procedures.

I alredy received e-mails, private messages and posts with thanks from people that, after digging online, found the answer to their mechanical problems, on my threads, on different web forums... even on web pages.

That exactly is all I want, a simple thank. :)

I don't want to sound arrogant, but here is an example:

Glad to see you kept up the super sleuthing Jes.

Crosses my mind that if this was the only wiring burning, how did you smell it as it is inside a sealed environment?

Or was the external wiring also getting hot?

Have seen the cooked wiring loom of a German made cars fuel pump. Needed more expertise than a generic mechanic and a new pump

Because the smell and the fumes were strong enough to be noticeable outside... maybe scaped from the filling tube cap?

That, plus the kind of fail that the car developed, made me search on that area...

Kind Regards.
