Re: Fuel pump won't seal in the tank

The retaining ring screw should screw on the full length of its threads easily by hand with the pump unit removed. If not then either the ring or tank threads are damaged.

Apart from Renault there are tank removal wrenches available from decent motor factors - see attached pic for a sample.
