The fuel pump is actually inside the gas tank. So unless u want a big hole in your floor board i would disconnect fuel lines and wires to the fuel tank. Remove screws, and ground strap from the filler area. My luck I always have a full tank of gas when the fuel pump decides to go out.. Full tank of gas over your head is not much fun. anyway try to avoid dripping gas, and your ears.... Trust me i know hurts like no other....

Do i actually have to drop the gas tank to change fuel pump?


Yes. You have to drop the gas tank to change the fuel pump. I would not do this at home! You need a hoist (car lift) and you have to drain the gas from the tank. Most shops would charge about $100-160 plus parts for this service..
