There are way too many steps involved to this procedure to post a response in this forum. Do yourself a favour and buy a chiltons or haynes manual for about $20.

This is a big job. You're going to want a shop manual that gives you all the required steps and photos. Haynes or Chilton will probably do just fine.

Sunfire fuel pumps are located inside the fuel tank. Replacing them requires the draining and removal of the fuel tank. If you're undertaking this job yourself, definitely pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car. This will give you all of the steps with photos.

It's hard to be specific here. Go to your local parts store and pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual for your car. Either one will have very good directions with pictures.

There are kits available for fixing fiberglass steps that are pulling away from the pool. You will need to drain the water below the area where you will be working.
