No. I’ll confirm it’s the right part when it comes in this week
This shows at a few sites as for a charger hellcat but not a challenger yet the tank is the same so IDK.

Definitely share once you know.

Update: it looks like it’s the correct arm. It’s only for 15-16, which is strange - I wonder if they changed the jet pump after that. Will release part number once I have a chance to pull jet pump and confirm. Was manufactured in the US in 2021 a also strange, being that it’s discontinued - was expecting it to be NOS

Even if they had changed the jet pump it would not have been much of a reason to change the level sender unless the position dramatically changed.

What year is yours again? Since I am a literal potato

Finally wrestled some pythons and did the passenger side jet pump fuel level sensor. That 100% was the problem. No splicing needed, I disassembled to connector, depinned it, and put the new one in. All fixed up and hopefully won’t have to play with the fuel system for a long long time. FYI, that white clip on the hose that goes to the driver side was white. It turned orange in 2-3 months. I see it losing its tension again eventually.

@AlleyCat i can definitely see how the jet pump can be easily broken if you force it out of the tank (since doing mine). It’s a shame, but I think the person you did yours broke it pulling it out of the tank

Not sure what I should use as new butt connectors. Anyone have any suggestions?
How about shrink-wrapping them?

I used self-solder shrink connectors for the wires and added a 2nd layer of heatshrink over that and pinched both ends tight to make sure they sealed.

The heatshrink and the actual self-solder sealing connections both looked good after 2 seasons. The only issue my drivers card had this time as an odd residue bridging the solder points for the wires on the card board itself.

The stock connector which connects to the stock hat in both the stock pump and the jet pump are exposed (the back side of the pins) and are submerged when the tank is full, only think you have to worry about is metal to metal/ wire to wire contact

Also, the terminals on the old passenger fuel level sensor were extremely corroded and rusted, almost rusted through. This is definitely due to non stop e85 use. Something to keep an eye out for.
