Message The other day when I went to disconnect fuel pump relay, after removing kick panel, I didn't immediately see it. Then I realized that there was a black plastic panel, glued to the body, covering it. Try as I might, I couldn't get the damn thing off without destroying it. It broke apart like peanut brittle. :-|

My question is, is this cover needed? I'm assuming this is a bit of typical Nissan over-engineering, but I also recall an episode where my '06 Mustang got wonky after some water got inside the passenger kickpanel...

Should I recover this area?

2nd question: Following the tech doc, after disconnecting relay, I relieved the pressure from gas cap and cranked the motor. The doc said it would run for a few seconds and then die. She never actually cranked. (and fuel rail disassembly went smooth, so there was definitely no pressure)

I'm wondering if this is normal, or was it a sign that my fuel system wasn't pressurized properly? I DID get a normal whoosh from the gas cap...
