To remove the fuel pump you will need to drop the fuel tank itself. Simply remove the filler hose from tank, and using a bottle jack with a block of wood on top, center jack under fuel tank near the center. You will need someone else to help with the removal if there is more than half a tank of fuel. Once the four bolts are removed. slowly lower the tank with jack and remove wires from the tank. Completely remove tank from under vehicle. Using a screwdriver and hammer, carefully tap the metal ring (or remove clips if plastic) and pull the pump straight out. When installing new pump, be certain that a new screen is purchased and attached to bottom of fuel pump assembly. Insert new assembly through top of tank and replace the retaining ring or clips. Then, in reverse order, install the fuel tank, reattaching wires before fully raising tank. Reinstall filler hose, be certain tank bolts are tight, and you are done. FYI...some fuel pump assemblies come with a new screen included. Be certain that new pump has screen included. If not, purchase screen. If the screen is not replaced, it will void the warranty on new fuel pump. Hope this helps you out.
The stock Bosch fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and can be accessed by removing the rear seat. Certain models have been recalled due to cracked flanges, permitting fuel to leak. If you smell gasoline inside or outside the vehicle or see wet fuel lines underneath the vehicle, contact your local Volvo dealer immediately. See below:

yes. the pump has gone out on the car it is a comon problem on chevy's it is located in the fuel tank under the car. get ready to spend some money they ain't cheap and I would recomend replacing your fuel filter every other oil change because its the life of the fuel pump. and the aftermarket pumps aren't worth a dime. the pump cost on average 234.95 at most parts stores we are a shop here in mulberry and we charge a flat rate of 110 on any intake fuel pump their a pain to change. hope this helps.
It will almost certainly be inside the gas tank. Pick up a Haynes manual, you'll be glad you did as this is not a simple job. You'll have to drain the fuel tank at least most of the way, lower it, remove the pump sending unit from the top of the tank, replace it and put it all back together.
