Fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank...first you will need to remove the screws holding the filler neck to the side of the fender...then remove the 2 straps holding the fuel tank up...you may need to remove the fuel lines coming out of the fuel pump assembly before dropping the tank...when you get the fuel tank off..there should be a large retaining clip holding the fuel pump assembly in the tank..you can remove the clip with needle nose pliers or if available, use retaining ring pliers...at this point the fule pump assembly should lift out of the fuel tank...be careful not to shear off the float for the sending unit(if your using the same sender unit), then reassemble in reverse order...you may want to replace the fuel filter at the same time(some warranties on fuel pumps will not cover the pump if you do not replace the filter)
Park your Chevy S10 in a safe place with a level surface. Make sure you have enough room to work around the truck.
Unplug the fuel pump relay, which is located in the fuse/relay box in the engine compartment on 1995 to 1997 2.2L engine models. Markings on the relay or the back of the fuse box lid should identify the relay. On other models, press the small stem inside the Schrader valve--similar to a bicycle-tire valve--located on the fuel inline rail, right before the first fuel injector. Cover the valve with a shop rag as you depress the stem with a small screwdriver to catch the squirt of fuel.
Disconnect the black, negative battery cable and raise the rear of the truck with a floor jack. Safely support it on two jack stands.
Drain the fuel tank into an approved container through the filler pipe. Use a hand siphon pump if necessary.
Disconnect the clamp from the filler hose at the tank with a screwdriver and remove the hose. Remove the tank shield. Support the fuel tank with a floor jack and a piece of wood on the jack pad to avoid damage to the tank.
Remove the tank-holding straps with a ratchet and socket.
Lower the fuel tank so you can disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel pump/sending unit assembly on top of the tank. Unplug the pump electrical connector and lower the tank to the floor.
Turn the lock-ring tabs holding the pump/sending unit assembly to the tank counterclockwise with a drift punch and a soft hammer until the ring is released.
Lift the pump/sending unit assembly off the tank, remove the pump and install the new pump in the pump/sending unit assembly. Discard the pump/sending unit O-ring seal.
Install a new pump/sending unit O-ring and set the pump assembly in the tank.
Lock the assembly lock ring by turning the ring clockwise until it locks in place.
Connect the fuel lines to the to the fuel/sending unit assembly and plug the pump electrical connector.
Raise the tank to its mounting position and install the tank-holding straps. Install the tank shield and connect the filler neck to the tank.
Lower the truck, plug the fuel-pump relay and connect the black, negative battery cable.
Refill the fuel tank, start the engine and check for leaks.
The fuel pump assembly is located in the fuel tank. Refer to the fuel
tank assembly illustrations in this section. On most applications, the
fuel tank must be lowered to remove the fuel pump assembly. The fuel
pump assembly is cooled by the fuel in the tank.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
Before disconnecting the fuel lines or any of the fuel system
components, release the fuel system pressure as described previously in
this section. Releasing system pressure is a very important step for the
correct removal of the electric fuel pump.
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Unfasten the fuel pump
assembly electrical connector and remove the fuel tank inspection cover.
If the truck has no fuel tank inspection cover, the fuel tank must be
lowered or removed to gain access to the in-tank fuel pump.
Disconnect the fuel outlet and return hoses. Remove the fuel tank assembly, if necessary.
Remove the ring retaining bolts and the O-ring, then lift the fuel
pump assembly from the fuel tank. Plug the opening with a clean rag to
prevent dirt from entering the system.
When removing or installing the fuel pump assembly, be careful not to damage or deform it. Always install a new O-ring. To install:
Install the fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank with a new O-ring.
Install the ring retaining bolts. Install the fuel tank if removed.
Reconnect the fuel lines and fasten the electrical connection.
Connect the battery cable, then start the engine and check for fuel leaks.
The "Check Engine Light'' may stay on after installation is
completed. If so, the trouble code in the control unit's memory must be
erased. To erase the code, disconnect the battery cable for 10 seconds,
then reconnect it a verify that the light is extinguished.

Empty fuel tank, support fuel tank, remove straps from tank (you'll probably have to replace those). Remove fuel filler neck from inside fuel door or at tank, drop tank, remove wire clips and fuel lines as necessary, remove fuel pump, put new pump in. Installation is reverse.
