First, verify that the fuel pump is actually bad. check relay, fuse etc. If you have done that and are satisfied with your diagnosis, and have also replaced the filter, If you can drive it, let the fuel level go as far down as possible (gasoline is heavy, the least in the tank the better). Spray the bolts that hold the tank in the day before you do the work, and again before you begin, with wd40 or other good solvent. It's easier to do this work using a decent floor jack with a piece of plywood on it to avoid damaging tank but two people can do it without much problem. Pay attention to where hoses go and make sure you have the tool to remove fittings. If you have never done this kind of job before, it helps to have a manual such as haynes, to guide you through it. (instructions not too complicated but too long to re-write here. Be sure you don't use droplights, any electrical items or cigarettes etc near where you are working...vapors can travel some distance along the ground. After the tank is down, empty remainder of fuel and clean out inside. Have containers to store fuel ready before you begin job.
Good luck with your project!!!
