    The '03 Evening Black has about 59K and the '04 Mint Bird has about 42K and no fuel pump issues yet on either car. Now that this is in print, I will be jinxed.

    That brings to mind if there is ever an inexpensive repair on retros??????????

    Seems to me like that what has been posted that a common starting point is a grand..

    At approximately 51000 miles. There was a low hum when vehicle was started behind the drivers side. It stopped after a couple of minutes. Didn't know it was the fuel pump. The vehicle was at a shop for a week getting a new rag top. When I picked it up the hum started, as usual, but became extremely loud and wouldn't stop. Was able to make it to the dealer. At that time I had no idea how the fuel system operated, on the Bird. Expensive lesson.

    There seems to be a good many reports of fuel pump failure on retro birds.
    I thought it would be helpful to know how many owners have had to replace their pump and at what mileage. Also if you have had no fuel pump issues and your mileage.. Thanks
