There are no easy fuel pump jobs. There is a way to cheat sometimes by peeling back the carpet in the hatch and cutting an access door to the top of the tank.... JUST BE CAREFUL!!

I did it to a 91 Firebird with great success. Just make sure to seal everything back up with rivets and silicon. Don't use a grinder either, use a pistol air hammer with a cutting blade.

Other wise you may have to drop the exhaust and possibly the rear axel. Make sure you siphon the gas out into approved gas can's/plastic gas tanks, or do the job with the tank on E

    On a 1990 corvette just remove the gas filler lid, remove boot an unhook wire connector. remove 8 bolts holding down sending unit and pull it right up and out. R/R takes no more than 30 minutes. Easy as pie to do. I have a 90 vette and did it for my first time without any problem.

How much time does it take to replace a fuel pump on a 1989 chevy corvette. How do you do it

About an hour, Open the lid where you put the fuel, there are four screws that you have to remove, remove the lid, pull the rubber boot out and there is the pump sending unit. remove the eight or ten bolts and pull the unit out. replace the pump and install in reverse order. These are the easiest ones I have done. You can do it.
