You don't have to buy the whole thing you just need the fuel pump.

# Relieve the fuel system pressure.
# Drain the fuel tank.
# Remove or disconnect the following:

# While holding the modular fuel sender assembly down, remove the snapring, if equipped or if equipped with a cam lock ring use Fuel Sender Lock Nut Tool J-39765 to press down and rotate the cam lock ring to remove it.
If the modular fuel sender assembly is retained by a snapring, it may spring up from its position. When removing the modular fuel sender from the tank, be aware that the reservoir bucket is full of fuel. It must be tipped slightly during removal to avoid damage to the float.

* Fuel sender assembly
* External fuel strainer
* Connector retainer from the wiring harness and the fuel pump

# Gently release the tabs on the sides of the fuel sender at the cover assembly. Begin by squeezing the sides of the reservoir and releasing the tab opposite the fuel level sensor. Move clockwise to release the second and third tab in the same manner.
# Remove or disconnect the following:

* Fuel pump electrical connection by lifting the cover assembly
* Baffle and pump assembly from the retainer by rotating the fuel pump baffle counterclockwise
* Fuel pump outlet by sliding it out of slot
* Fuel pump outlet seal

Any repair shop can look up the time in the labor manuels for you. If you have a couple days and enough tools do it your self. The main issue is how did you test for a bad pump and is that your problem??

you can try just resetting the fuel pump switch located in the car

the switch is originally in the car for in case of an accident, however, if changed, chances are you also have to reset it
