Gas sending unit needs change in tank

I don't believe Cadillac has the trap door through the rear seat or trunk so you'll have to drop the gas tank in order to change the sending unit, then again I's change the whole pump and sender as a unit, if the car has over 80k on the clock the pumps not far behind in failing, after all it's just an expensive GM product and the fuel pumps are know for failure at around 80k to 100k

Is there a trap door for a 1991 buick in estate station wagon 4 the fuel pump

No there is not. If the fuel pump needs to be replaced than the fuel tank will need to be dropped from the vehicle. This is a pretty easy tank to pull.

Need to know location of fuel pump relay on a Mazda mpv 3.0l v6 1997 model

The pump is in the tank. Before you consider dropping the tank. Lift the carpet in the back seat above the tank. The older MPVs had a trap door which would access the pump with out dropping the tank. It is definitely worth a look. I changed mine in half an hour.

Fuel pump.can I make trap door in floor to get to fuel pump

Well, I suppose that you could make a trap door, but the car would be altered from that point forward. Typically you only need to access the fuel pump once every 200, 000 miles, so I suggest, just drop the tank.

Fuel pump went out, need to replace. Need best way to go about doing the repair myself.

Check to see if the fuel pump is accessable from a trap door...that can be done by calling the dealor, some are. If it isn't, get as much fuel out as possible...if it is still running run the fuel low. You will need to drop the tank if there isn't any trap doors to it. Make sure that you use OME (Factory equipment) on this one since you don't want to have to do it again. Make sure that you put on a new sock, make sure that you change the filter, and look to see if there is any debrie in the bottom of the tank if there is you want to get it all out. You will put the pump back in the same way that it came out just in reverse of the watch closely the direction that the fuel pump facing when removing it...your do fine.
