Fuel pump is located inside fuel tank.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
That doesn't tell me how to replace it.
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 5 years ago.

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.

  • Remove the rubber exhaust hangers. Allow the exhaust system to rest on the rear axle.

  • Loosen the fuel filler hose clamp at the fuel tank.
  • Disconnect the fuel filler hose from the fuel tank.
  • Disconnect the evaporative emission (EVAP) vapor pipe from the EVAP canister.
  • Disconnect the electrical harness from the multi-way rear body connector and fuel strap.
