You will have to drop the tank. Soak the bolts on the straps with a penetrating fluid before you start.

1999 Cadillac Deville - How to replace fuel pump? Fuse is OK and fuel pump does not run. Is fuel pump accessible through trunk or must you drop tank? Thanks in advance for your help.


Unfortunetly Cadillac does not have an access panel for fuel pump access until the newer years. You will need to drop the tank. Also, don't let the tank come slamming to the ground, make sure you take it slow so you dont dammage the lines to the sending unit.

Good Luck!

    How do i get to the fuel pump on a 1997 s10 blazer

    Unless there is an access panel inside the vehicle above the fuel pump, you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to access the pump. Do not forget to replace the fuel filter. Partially clogged fuel filter is one of the causes of a failed fuel pump.

    I want to know if there is a way to replace the fuel pump without having to drop the fuel tank on my Dodge Stratus. Because I also have a Buick Century with a little door behind the back seat that is an...

    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.
