The problem with that solution is that the 29F3 fault will not usually ever set a check engine light at all. Usually it's a "hard" fault and the low-side fuel pressure reading defaults to a substitute value -- which means the DME doesn't know the true pressure in the low-pressure fuel system. This could affect how the engine starts, how the DME controls the fuel pump, and other possible performance issues.

I'd replace it ASAP if it were my car -- be it out of my own pocket or not.
