How to replace Fuel Pressure Regulator on Acura Car models?

If you need dis-assembly or replacement instructions for any other auto/car part, or you want to ask question related to your car/truck jeep problem then please leave the comment with your details, so I can provide you the required instructions and solutions.
The procedure is as follows :-----

Fuel Pressure Regulator


The fuel pressure regulator keeps a constant fuel pressure to the fuel injectors. When the manifold pressure and fuel pressure vary more than 43 psi (294 kPa) the diaphragm is pushed upward causing the excess fuel to be fed back into the fuel tank through a return line.

Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do not allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion. See Figure 1

To install:
