  14. Hi , LHD Esprit S4 one of the last 12 built :info from Hethel.Impossible to know if she is the 12 or the 1 of the 12 to day my fuel pump was changed. Work done by my Lotus Dealer where i bought her 1997.12 some pics of this work for informations. 1.Time to turn out the pump , with all around prepared before 1 hrs 3/4. 2.Time to put in the new and change the fuel filter 1 hour and half. 3.control fuel security with engine running. It is safe for the car and your life that no fuel is running away. A second control will be done friday afternoon. Some extra infos about this work 1. inside of my tank is ok, no rust. 2. the old filter was quite nice after 77033 km genuine since I bought her new and use good fuel (i hope..). 3.Important: we discovered just behind that the small metal piece which joined for rigidity the water tube to the frame was rust broken .And some evident risks for that . My friend with a s4s garaged near mine since 1997 look and discovered the same problem.A new one home- dealer will be hand made with serious metal rust resistant..... 4. a small tap and the old pump : it starts again, but change it is safe because it cans stop again and anywhere at any speed if you need more infos send me a mail. best regards Patrick
