Disconnect battery terminals to prevent and spark. Jack the vehicle up and support it with jack stands. Have some cans and rags handy to catch the excess gas. Undo the round locking ring underneath the gas tank and pull the old pump out and replace it with new fuel pump.

First of all make sure that fuel is less than half of the tank. You will need some tools. Disconnect the fuel connector. There is a lock ring on the top which needs to be opened(loosed). Remove the electrical leads from the pump. Removes all the bolts and screws and take old kit out and install new one.

The fuel pump on a Cherokee is located behind the radiator. Jeep's are nice to work on because you generally don't need any advanced tools. They are very simple and basic engines. Once you've located the radiator, you're going to have to remove the brake fluid well in order to get to the fuel pump.

The fuel pump on most Cherokees is in the fuel tank. It is best to remove all the fuel. Then carefully drop the tank, remove the fuel pump module from the tank. Install new module and re-install tank.
