No, the tank has to be removed to get to the pump. Not much fun on a 28 year old car-all the hoses and hose clamps will be set tight with age and rust. The big filler hose will be especially tough-you may want to cut it through, then remove the pieces after the tank is out of the way. Then you would need a new filler hose-sometimes that is the easiest way to get the hoses and lines off.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement

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.

Yes you do. Be careful of the plastic fuel supply line when you reinstall the assembly. The hose can kink, and you will not have fuel pressure.

Can I replace the fuel pump without taking out the gas tank on a Toyota 2008 RAV4.


You should be able to access it from the back of the fuel tank without dropping the tank, although you will have to raise the vehicle a bit to have good access.

Can you replace an inline fuel filter without replacing the whole gas tank?


the in-line filter is in the fuel line between the tank and the engine, seldom do you have to even touch the tank much less remove it in order to replace that filter. there is a screen on the pump inlet of the
in-tank fuel pump and most likely you are going to have to drop the tank in order to replace the pump or the fuel level sender. make sure there is not a service access hole in the rear of the car such as under the spare tire which could give you access to the top of the tank. on the other hand it is not unusual to find yourself in a situation where a lot of the fuel line must be replaced when you replace the in-line filter. as such you may find yourself with no room to connect the new fuel line to the nipple on top of the tank, without lowering the tank a bit.

How do I change a fuel pump on a 1999 buick regal


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. more than likely you have to drop the tank to remove/replace the pump. I would contact you local dealers service dept. as some of those cars had an access panel under the back seat to access the pump without having to remove the tank.

If you have an access panel, it should be an hour or less job with common hand tools.

Can you change the fuel pump without dropping the gas tank?


The only way you can change one without dropping one is by a access hole. Look under your back seat. Take it out. If there is two compartments in the back, one of them is your fuel pump access lid. The other one is your float. If you can't get to it from the back seat, you will have to drop the tank. There is no way around it. Sorry.

Where is access to fuel pump without dropping gas tank


There is no access other than dropping the fuel tank. On a pickup you can raise the bed but this is not an option for you. It is not a huge deal to drop the tank, however it is difficult to reinstal the lock ring while putting the new pump in.

If you have a carburetor, you have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine. If you have a throttle body injection your pump is in the tank and the tank needs to be removed to get at it. Before dropping tank make sure the pump is getting power and a good ground.

You can check under the seat of the Stratus for an access point. But unfortunately I don't think there is door. You are going to be pulling out the tank.

Too bad GM doesnt provide a cover to access tank without dropping the tank. I would think creating this "hole" would be quite the endeavor and done correctly would add quite the additional time and expense. Decline cutting holes and drop the tank in order to service the pump/sender. Any reputable repair firm should or would never recomend this measure in order to access the pump in the fuel tank I would hope....

1996 fuel pump in gastank


Unfortunately not. most fuel pumps are located inside the tank and the fuel filters are located along the frame work of the vehicle, running in line with the fuel lines. There are some exceptions. Some cars have fuel pump locations that will allow you to access them without dropping the tank but, this model will require you to at least lower the tank for complete access.
