Under the front side of the rear seat you should find a release button oush the button and lift up, while lifting guide the seat belts thruogh their openings.

ok now what about my fuel pump, how do I replace it?



1.) Disconnect the Negative Battery terminal.


2.) Depressurize the fuel system.


3.) Disconnect Electrical connections.


4.) Disconnect fuel lines.


5.) The fuel pump has a locking ring holding it in in place it will turn counterclockwise to remove.

Yes the actual fuel pump is mounted in the top of the fuel tank.
