Question about Chevrolet Cavalier
Unfortunatly, yes that does require dropping the tank. Hope it's low and not full. Get it up in the air and supported, and disconnect the lines and wires and loosen the 2 hoses going to your filler neck. you want to support the tank before dropping the tank straps, or have a few people there if it's full, try not to spill much. When you do get it out be sure to clean the top of the sending unit! you don't want to get any dirt or debris in the tank. Also when you need to tap the ring off on the sending unit, use a brass punch and a hard plastic mallet or brass hammer. I say use brass because it won't spark, as sometimes metal blows can create a small spark, and it has happened before, better safe than sorry i say. Once you get it out you will need to remove the pump from the sending unit, replace the seals, and the new pump will tell you the rest, and just reverse step it to finish.
