A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
I replaced mine, fuel pump in the tank, drop the tank (make sure yo get as much fuel out as possible prior, it is heavy enough and awkward as is) While you replacing that, I suggeest replacing the fuel tank gauge ( connected to fuel pump, but have to buy them seperate and assemble) as well with a new rubber gasket. I had to drop mine twice because of of the gauge. Two man job, a car jack with a good size piece of wood for balancing the tank helps a bunch especailly for re-installation

Re: 1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement
The full ford bronco fuel pump will be found in front of the rear tire drivers side, inside of the frame rail. The filter is a metal can placed behind the front driver tire frame rail. They are easy to change and you will need a fuel compression removal tool. They are about $10. at the cheap auto parts stores.

Broncos are known for bad fuel pumps in the tank. Hopefully you do not have a full tank of fuel and will be able to drop the tank fairly easily. Please use a jack when lowering the tank as someone could get hurt. I myself cut a door in the floor of the cargo area to access the fuel pump without having to drop the tank you will see once dropping the tanks how this could definitely come in handy in your near future.
The fuel pump is in the gas tank and access in inside the van between the first row and second row of seats. The access is covered with a carpeted cover and then another metal cover which screws into the gas tank. Then there is a cover top of the assembly.
You must use a brush and clean off all the areas before removing the pump or the dirt will get into the gas tank. Disconnect three electrical connectors and two fuel lines. Mark the fuel lines so you are not confused to put in the new one. The electrical conectoers are individually different from each other.
2005's do not screw into the tank, they have clips. The clips have tabs imbedded into the top so you know where they are located to disengage them.
The tank lifts out and the float mechanism requires you to live it up and then tilt and shift it to get the float mechanism clear of the gas tank hole.
you have to drop the fuel tank to replace it. best to do when the tank is almost empty. if you still have fuel in it you can buy a device to pump out the fuel from the fill tube then drop the skid plate, metal straps and it will come down. use a large floor jack with some wood to help lower it down and put back up.
The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Look under the carpeting in the back of the truck for an access hatch, either in the cargo area or under the rear seat. If you don't see one, you'll have to drop the tank down off the bottom of the car.
