    My fuel pump went out and my husband is trying to replace it but he does not know what to do about the exhaust system in order to get to the gas tank. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    I have the same problem but am not for sure it is the fuel pump. My car wants to start it really does, but to no avail. It just dies. I'd hate to spend 4 to 500 $ to fix it and that is not the issue.

Cut a hole in the floor under the rear seat with tin snips, then when you finish just make a flap with some sheet metal and cover it up. takes about 20 minutes to have the car up and running again.

I HAVE A 1994 hYANDAI eXEL 3 DOOR HATCH fuel pump needs to be replaced can I do this myself and what are the procedures.


I researched this vehicle on Hyundai's Website & couldn't determine if there is an access plate/port under the rear seat bottom to get to the fuel pump. The fuel pump in this particular year/model is an in-tank type. If you remove the rear seat bottom and check to see if there's an access plate, you can get to it from the floor of the back seat (seat bottom removed). If there is no access plate, then the fuel tank will need to be lowered (or maybe even taken out) to get to the fuel pump.

No, like others said, there's an access plate under the rear seats. Most imports (Honda, Toyota, Nissan) have this access plate to get to the pump. Some domestics don't (90's Camaros etc)
