Busted fuel pump assembly

Where would be the best place to find a new or used top half of the fuel pump enclosure? I snapped the vent nipple off trying to pry up on it during removal.

Yeah not that expensive. If it is an 05 then sand it down before reinstall so it goes in and out smoothly!

Anyone have the Toyota part number for the 2002 Celica GTS fuel pump housing top plate? The Lotus part number is A120L6008S and they call it the Pipe Plate Assembly.

Just as a future reference for those considering removing the 05 pump assembly, BUY THE REPLACEMENT HOUSING AHEAD OF TIME FROM A JUNKYARD. Unless you drop the tank (and even then) chances of breaking that plastic somehow are almost guaranteed. Luckily I picked up the whole assembly at a junkyard for 30$ as opposed to the +130$ it would have cost new.

And to avoid going through that hassle every time, take something round like a breaker bar and carefully hit along the inside edge of the tank to widen it just a bit.
