Hello, my name is***** you for the question. The fuel pump on this car is located inside of the fuel tank. You need to drop the fuel tank from under the car in order to be able to access the pump. Did you plan on removing the tank yourself?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I plan to remove it myself my problem is I can't get to the bolt that hols the strap on is there any other way to do this
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 2 years ago.
In order to remove this you will need to remove the rear sub frame. Has this been removed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No haven't removes that
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 2 years ago.
That needs to be removed before you can actually get the tank out.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yea I know I was just trying to see if there's another way around getting to fuel pump instead of dropping all the rear off
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 2 years ago.
Unfortunately there is not. It is a pretty bad design as they do not make it very straight forward.
