2000 Legacy here, just got through dealing with the same issue. My mechanic tried to tig-weld the cap but it only lasted a week at best, so I had to replace it with the NPN kit that everyone here is referencing.
One thing: I decided to go with a 90A durometer o-ring (from Amazon... I have 9 left, sigh), which is quite hard. I figured if the problem is the o-ring blowing out, then the harder one will be better. When I got the assembly off it definitely seemed like the original part was a softer o-ring, of the typical 75A durometer rating. But the new cap went on (after a bit of an argument) with the harder o-ring just fine, and the car is working fine now.

I just opened up my fuel tank.
The o-ring of doom got me, too.

it does seem to have the sender and some gaskets separated out. I was hoping the cap and o-ring might also be listed separately.

Anyone have access to TSBs ?
There may be a breakdown of parts now making it easier to repair the pump.

A high pitched squeal from the tank area is the sound of a normal pump running. On any car, turn the key to the first position (before starting) and listen. the pump will run for a few seconds to pressurize the fuel rail. it will sound like this-a high pitched squeal. once the car is running, the sound is overwhelmed by the running engine sounds and you never hear it.
the squeal does NOT mean it is bad.

|Dodik||generally high pitched sound from tank would be fuel pump going bad from my expirience|
