First you need a small mirror and a pair of small 45 degree internal snap ring pliers. On the back of the regulator housing, you look with the mirror and you will see the two small holes to the snap ring. reach the pliers around the outside of the coil pack with your right hand and hold the mirror back behind the regulator by stretching your left across the intake plenum. Once you get the snap ring out wiggle the regulator and it should come straight back out. Installation is reverse.

The Regulator for a 1994 Deville is mounted on the fuel rail. Disconnect the battery, then relieve fuel pressure. Remove the vacuum line from the regulator and unscrew it to replace.

undo the glass from the regulator and pull it up out of the door and get new gass and drop it down inside the door into the window channels and rehook the glass to the regulator.

By replacing the fuel pump assembly. The regulator is built into the assembly itself

Yes.. But it would be cheaper to just buy the whole regulator and replace it.

The regulator is only available with the fuel pump. So if the pressure is not correct, you need to replace the pump.

The regulator is part of the fuel pump. You have to drop the fuel tank to access.
