Fuel pickup for SX4
« on: December 09, 2015, 04:23:37 PM »
Anyone know if a new fuel pickup for an SX4 can be bought anywhere? I'm pretty sure mine has a pin-hole or something and needs to be replaced.

If new ones aren't available, has anyone modified one from another vehicle to work?

I bought a new one for my Kammback way back in 2008.  Let me see if I can track down where I bought it from.  At that time I had also found an outfit that repaired fuel pickups for about the same cost as a new one.
