Default Fuel Pump Replacement

Does anyone have the GM Labor Guide that tells the recommended install time for replacing the fuel pumps in both tanks?

2000 A4 Coupe

Thanks!

I was just hoping for the labor guide time. They're usually pretty accurate for the time it takes me to complete the task. thanks for the feedback.

It should not take you more than an hour to do just the drivers side. It really depends on how much fuel you have to drain out the tank. The reason you would replace the driver side pump is because it is the pump that sends the fuel to the engine. The passenger side pump is only used to pump fuel from the passenger side tank to the driver side tank.

According to ALLDATA, the warranty time is 7.7 hrs. The retail labor is 10.8 hrs (does not include: drain & refill fuel tank).
