4. Disconnect the battery from weight and the sensor socket on a tank.
5. Check the sensor resistance which at completely filled tank has to be 17 Ohms, and at empty – about 120 Ohms.
6. It is also possible to remove the sensor and to check resistance according to the scheme (see rice. Check of the fuel level sensor).
7. If resistance of the sensor differ, then replace the sensor.
8. For replacement of the sensor remove a tank on cars of early release, and on cars of a series 80 remove an average seat.
9. Having slightly inclined, carefully get the sensor with an arm.
10. Disconnect the socket, unscrew the screw and remove the sensor from an arm.
