It has a lock ring that you have to hit counter clockwise in order to remove it, you must clean around it first so that you don't put stuff into the tank and be careful not to cause a spark, the lock ring looks like an upside down soda bottle cap sort of or if you know what a spanner wrench looks like [[[[ but sideways once the ring is turned the pump will come out.

How do I remove an in-tank fuel pump from a chevy 1500?

You need to remove the fuel tan from the truck. Make sure to support the tank so it does not drop out after removing the hold in bands. Disconnect all hoses and connections from the top before removing the tank. After placing the tank on the floor, use a brass punch(so no sparks are produced) to loosen the lock ring around the tank. Remove the pump and replace. Its a good idea to replace the fuel sock if it didn't come with the pump. Reinstall in the reverse manner.

1998 cheverolet c1500 bad fuel pump need to drop the fuel tank

First have as little fuel in there as possible, half a tank will be heavy, 1/4 tank is manageable. You can buy pumps at the auto parts store.
Disconnect the battery, open the filler cap. Remove the filler hose and vent tubePut a jack with a section of 2x4 under the fuel tank. Undo the strap bolts, then lower the tank enough so you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connectors.
Once tank is removed you will need a flat blade screwdriver or chisel and a hammer to remove the ring holding the fuel pump.
Remove the fuel pump then do the reverse to install (you may have to splice in a new connector).

How to change fuel pump in 97 chevy 2500 (cargo

You have to drop the fuel tank. It is inside. Hope the tank is near empty, remove the 2 fuel fill hoses, you have two straps, lower tank, remove 3 wire connectors, and several more lines. Please use an ac delco fuel pump module. It may come updated with a new wiring connector to fix the old ones problem. If it does, you have to rewire the van following the directions.
