Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line
  
Whenever the high pressure fuel fuse, fuel pipe, delivery pipe, or injector is removed immediately after shutting off the engine, an injury may be caused by the release of highly pressurized fuel. Release the residual pressure in the high pressure fuel line by referring to the "Residual fuel pressure release procedure" below before removing any high pressure fuel system components.
  
Wear safety glasses and fuel resistant gloves.
1.
Turn the ignition off and disconnect the battery negative (-) terminal.
2.
Remove the fuel pump fuse (A).

3.
Reconnect the battery negative (-) terminal.
