That doesn't tell me how to replace it.

Hello, I'm sorry that Clucker gave you such a sub-standard answer. I can assist you. You will need to remove the fuel tank in-order to replace the pump. Raise the vehicle safely, and support it on jack stands. Remove the fuel supply, return and EVAP lines from the back of the fuel tank, remove the electrical connector. You will need to drill out a few rivets from the heat shield on the left side. Remove the filler neck, remove the 2 bolts for the strap and then remove the fuel tank.
