    I searched here and havent found a good answer. Anyone have a recommendation for a replacement new fuel pump for a 5th gen (1999)?. Looking at ebay in particular since its the easiest for me and they have a %15 off right now.

    Most often you don’t have to replace the entire asssembly, just the fuel pump itself. Of course, before replacing the pump, go through the service manual steps to confirm the pump is getting voltage. I’ve had good results from two pumps sourced from Amazon - a Caltric for $17, and an HPF for $60. Both pumps looked and operated identically. When you remove the pump assembly, you may well find deteriorated hoses and fittings. Here is a current thread with a lot of good fuel tank/pump insights:

    Alternative knecht kl145 (diameter 49mm) the original diameter slightly smaller otherwise the same
    Attention! filter MANN mwk 44 external. diameter 50mm, and the original 40mm. MANN mwk 44 and knecht kl145 analogues only among themselves. Simply they can be accommodated on the VFR. I installed myself MANN mwk 44
