I have a new fuel pump for my 2004 pontiac grand am. I carefully cut an access hole to get at pump.
My new pump has 2 new EVAP lines, is there room enough to get these lines past tank to reconnect?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

it would be hard for me to answer if you have room enough,sense you made your own access hole to try and install the pump through,

this is not the correct way of doing this and i would think the job would go quicker by doing it the correct way by removing the fuel tank.

again,i think the job will go better by doing it correctly.

though, i can give you instructions on how to replace the pump

Go ahead and give me the instructions, I am not going to drop the tank. It's the 2 EVAP hoses that maybe the problem
