My fuel pump was making so much noise - I was pretty sure it's on it's last leg.
It was screwed to the body without any rubber mounts.
And I thought the rubber mounts won't make much difference anyways.
Last week I ordered some stuff from Auto Ricambi and I ordered couple mounts as well , since they were so cheap .
I fabricated a corner bracket and mounted the pump with rubber mount on it.
When I first turned the key on , I had to come out of the car and put my ear close to the pump to make sure it's on.
What a difference !!!!
And with my new trunk floor it became totally silent.
Another great improvement .
