Unfortunately you have to drop the tank. You have to remove quick connect fuel lines and more. Use a floor jack to support the tank, remove the tank strap retaining bolts, lower the tank enough to remove fuel sending connection, remove the tank, rotate lock ring counterclockwise. You need more information to remove the strainer from the pump and to pull the pump assembly out.
This is not a beginers job. Good luck.

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

I need to know how to drop the fuel tank so i can change my fuel pump please

You don't need to drop the fuel tank in a 1995 940. There is an access panel in the trunk. Under the trunk liner there is a panel to the left of the backseat access. Unscrew the 4 screws there and you should see a screw-top cover. Remove it and you will have access to the fuel pump and floater.

Fuel gauge non Digital car does check system then while sitting it goes from full tank to empty and no reading's in between.

This problem is caused by a defective fuel gauge level sending unit, the sending unit is located inside the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly (known as the fuel pump module) and not sold separate from the fuel pump. To replace the fuel pump module you must remove the fuel tank from the car.

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!
