Default fuel level sensor install

The gas hand stopped working on my camaro awhile back and I finally ordered one from racetronix. I don't have the assembly out yet but I'm hoping to tomorrow. How difficult is it to change the sensor? Can anybody give me a brief explanation of what I"ll need to do?

unplug the wires and remove the sensor.

for the price of the fuel sender unit you can almost buy a whole bucket with a new pump from racetronix

I assume you have a 99+ as the 98 assembly can only be ordered as a full unit

In either case you just need to do the install similar to a fuel pump

Got it finished. Two little plastic pins, two wires to be swapped over to the plug in, and pop the float back on. The little fingers were broke off the old one.
