SOURCE: 2003 Pontiac Sunfire fuel pump
if you have one of those cars whit the fuel tank metal neck, in other words there is not rober hose going from the fuel cap to the tank but only a big metal pipe then what you have to do is remove the fuel cap and the plastic cover arround the cap and when you have good space then inser a pry bar or something inside the fuel tank neck and bent the pipe towards the floor and that will help you to get it out easier but make sure to discharge your boddy from any static current by touching fist the floor by hand
they are not easy to replace it is very hard but give it a try

2003 Grand Am GT,You have to drop the fuel tank,remove heat shield,remove all lines,electrical plug ins,then you are ready to do straps,be sure to go get extra nut and bolts for straps (2) of them had to cut off old ones,once straps are off depending on how much gas is in the tank used jack to lower tank,fuel pump was a twist off with locking mechanisms on top of tank,used a rubber malet and screw driver to loosen,pull out after diconnecting plug ins etc,replace blue plug in for harness to fit new pump,was recommended since it could corrode,lifted tank back up connected wires,lines etc,put key in on position 3-4 times for pump to pump,car started 1st time,my first fuel pump took my son and I 2 1/2 hours,new pump $250.00 wire harness $15.00 and two new nuts and bolts $3.25

Have somebody listen at the gas cap for a buzzing sound when the ignition switch is turned on, or if you can hear it, it only does it for a few seconds, if you don't hear it, the pump is bad and the gas tank has to be dropped to change it.
This is not recomended, but I do it all the time to make sure the problem is in the fuel system. Spray a little bit of starting fluid in the intake, if it starts, the problem is in the fuel system, but listen for the buzz sound first.
Other problem could be a clogged fuel filter, or a faulty fuel pressure regulator. Have a fuel pressure test done, that would also reveal the problem, if it's a fuel problem.

Once you get the fuel tank out, its self explanatory. Some cars do have a access panel under the seat, but I dont think a sunfire does.
