check to see if your gas tank is lined up with the back seat. if it

is chances are you remove your back seat and under will be a plate

on top of gas tank. remove plate and youll see the fuel pump. (fuel

pump) not sure how to take it off but i think its just a screw.

then it will have a harness hook up just pull it apart and hook new

pump up and replace back seat. some seats take a 6 hex socket to

get off. 3/8 drive is the best cause its hard to get too but is

alot easier than dropping the gas tank. id call auto zone and ask

one of the guys if can be reached under the back seat they would

probably know. if you have to drop the gas tank i would take it to

the shop. but if you have good tools and a garage(wich i don't) go

for it, shouldn't too hard. if you have a full tank it will be

heavy. around 7lbs per gallon plus weight of tank. sorry i couldn't

be more help goodluck

There is no access throght the seat on this car The fuel tank

needs to be removed. Very easy to do Disconnect fuel lines and fill

neck Remove the two tank strap bolts let the tank drop It won't

fall all the way out Reach your hand onto top of tank and

disconnect two electrical connectors Lower the straps and lower the
