full of it. its not like its a soft cell plastic tank, its hard plastic. if it collapsed in when you replaced the pump, there are other more chronic issues going on.

there are a few instructionals on here as to how to do it yourself. its a piece of piss actually. Use the search.

what about the plastc ring? i know the ef has it, and i couldnt get mine off without either breaking it or getting the tool with the 3 prongs, came off straight away with that, i have also gotten them off with a bit of wood and a hammer but you can damage it if its never been off and you dont have the right tool,ive done 3 ef fuel pumps so ive got the hang of it, hope i dont have to do it ever again tho :|

You can use 2 medium pry bars or large screwdrivs and x them over them selves. Usually works.
Does the big clamp surve any pourpose?

Make sure you mark the rail and return lines and put them on right way otherwise it won't run.

.

if pressure builds up in the tank and it has no where to go i guess it could pop the ring off if the clamps not on or done up tight?
