You'll find the access panel under the boot floor. There is, or used to be, a large one for the pump & a small one for the gauge sender unit. The pump is held in with a threaded collar.

    And i've just remembered, the sender is held in with a collar but the pump has a rubber gaitor & jubilee clip. If replacing the pump beware of the height/depth the pump sits in the tank.

Trying to determine how to access the fuel pump in 2004 Jetta to replace it. Do you have to drop the tank or is there access through the vehicle elsewhere? I am unable to locate this information, other...


The pumps are installed inside your fuel tank; since liquid fuel cannot blow up, this is the best location for installation. In order to replace it you must drop the tank and get at the pump from the top. I would check fuse #28, which is the fuse to the fuel pump relay before pulling the pump. Otherwise, you would be wise to consider the amount of work involved in dropping the tank. It requires removing the bolts from the straps, pulling the fuel lines, removing the gas inlet, removing the connectors and then you get to the pump. Let me know if you want to go this route and I will do my best to give you step by step direction to remove the pump.

Must you drop the gas tank or is there an axcess panel to replace the in tank fuel pump?


no, there is an access panel under the rear seat-remove the bench and the top part of the seat in the rear and pull back the carpet-there is a inspection plate that is screwed into place above the fuel pump.

How do I change a fuel pump on a 1999 buick regal


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. more than likely you have to drop the tank to remove/replace the pump. I would contact you local dealers service dept. as some of those cars had an access panel under the back seat to access the pump without having to remove the tank.

If you have an access panel, it should be an hour or less job with common hand tools.

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.

No, like others said, there's an access plate under the rear seats. Most imports (Honda, Toyota, Nissan) have this access plate to get to the pump. Some domestics don't (90's Camaros etc)

Fuel pump is not working.


All you have to do is lift the back seat up to see if access panel is there, if not then you have to drop the tank. Fuel switch if it has one would be located on the back qtr panels in the trunk, move the plastic panels or rug from the side panels. More than likely if there is one it would be on the left. If not then connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel rail and turn the switch to on or try to get someone to crank the car, read the guage. Pressure should be around 40 psi. If no pressure then eather the connecters to the pump is loose or the pump is bad. In that situation if there is no access panel under the back seat, then you have to remove the tank.
