On the passenger side under the seat there is a wire harness that goes into a plate that is held down with 4 screws. Remove those 4 screws and the plate. The pump will be under it.

If you don't see a cover with four screws than you will need to drop the fuel tank in order to change the fuel pump.

Is there an access panel to the fuel pump beneath the back seat of my 2004 dodge stratus se?

Highly unlikely. Even if there is, It's there for testing purposes. To change the fuel pump, you have to drop the tank.

Where is the fuel pump located

You should be able to get to it from the back seat. Lift up your back seat and you should see two different compartments. The one on your right is the float. The one on your left is the access point for your fuel pump. You can get to it right there. Hope this helps.

Do I have to drop the fuel tankon a 2004 Dodge Stratus to change the fuel pump?

We were able to change ours on a 1995 Ford by removing the back seat,but it was made for easy removal and the pump cap was under an access panel under the seat.You can try and see if your back seat comes out easily,just push buttons on it or whatever you may find which appears geared toward removal,and it may work.It's hard to say,different makes different methods.But it is worth a try at least because it would be easier than removing the tank.Try calling a dealer or a couple of shops first too before you attempt,someone out there will normally give free information to attract your future business.Good luck!

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.

I cant locate the fuel filter

Not 100% sure on stratus, but common place for dodge is ahead of the passenger side rear wheel, under car attached to frame. If not in that area, jack up passenger rear side, and use safety stands, & follow lines from top of tank, you'll find it.
