Haynes says a similar statement. But, it also says "Regulator rebuild kits are now available and are much less costly than an entire fuel rail assembly."
The paper that comes with the regulator states that i need to unscrew the torx screws, while holding down the regulator casing, due to the fact there a lot of spring tension under it. Replace the diaphragm and screw back in, and torque to 15ft lbs. But states nothing about the o rings in the kit.

I'm trying to replace my fuel pressure regulator in my 96 3800. I was there for about 2 hours with snap ring pliers and a mirror, with all my coil packs removed trying to get the snap ring out.Couldn't do it. Even if I was able to get it out, I feel like it would take a miracle to balance the snap ring on the pliers, and get it back in there without the snap ring falling off the pliers. How did you do it Scotts 98?? Is there an easier way to do this? Should I take the whole fuel rail out?
Thanks for any help you can offer guys.
