    I need to take out the back seat of my 1992 Nissan Maxima to change the fuel pump... I took off the two bolts behind the arm rest, after popping off the plastic caps, then unbolted the sides near the floor, but the bench part of the seat only lifts up in the back, but is still attached to the base somehow near the floor. I can't see how to take it off to be able to work on replacing the fuel pump.

Push in on the bottom front of the seat to release the spring latches, run a putty knife under the seat to locate the 2 latches.

Wanted to know how hard is it to replace the fuel pump on a 97 nissan maxima and where is the fuel pump located?

take out the back seat(bottom part) or pull back the liner in trunk. You should see a small panel. Unscrew the panel cover to reveal the fuel pump. Remove it SLOWLY and be careful of plastic parts, they snap easy. Just remove and reinstall, its pretty simple. Make sure the is no full of gas, it will be everywhere.

How hard is it to change a fuel pump in 1996 nissan maxima. the car seem like it getting no gas and sometime cutt-off while idling. i change the fuel filter, problem still occur. beside fuel pump what else...

If it drives at highway do not need a pump.
Do you have a "check engine" light on?
Hopefully you it will show you a code to help cure the problem.
I would start with a throttle body cleaning.

If you want to access the fuel pump......remove the back seat....bottom seat.
Remove the cover on the floor.....under the seat.....there's the pump.

Were is the fuel pump located?

The fuel pump IS located in the fuel tank. It is easily accessed in this particuar model, under the rear seat. If you have an arm reat in the middle of the rear seat, you'll need to go in through the trunk. Remove the cover from the the far back, between the back of the rear seat and the trunk space. Remove approximately 4 to 6 screws in the center piece of cardboard that attaches the armrest and rearseat to the cross menber of seperating trunk from seat.
From the back seat, grab the top of the back rest of rear seat, PULL HARD forward on left and right sides . This should disconnect the top. Then, on left + right-sides, toward the lower cushon, there will be a bolt, remove them.
Then pull up the bottom cushion.
In the middle of the floor you have left, where the bottom cushion once was, you will find the top of the fuel pump access. From the top there is a cable that goes toward the driverside, follow it to the connector which should be cover by a small piece of foam. Remember to diconnect the pump before attempting to service or replace it.
