Once I have taken off the oil pan and see the oil filtering screen, the oil pump is located inside the engine at a location in which i cannot get to it. What is the best solution of getting the oil pump dismantled?

Your oil pump is located inside the oil pan but is part of the chain assembly. The first picture is with the oil pan removed and the engine upside down (the red arrow) the second is right side up red arrow pointing to the oil pump. That gear with the chain on it is left handed thread when removing and installing. Hope this helps....

The location of the oil pump is located inside the engine oil pan. The oil pan being on the very bottom of the engine. This would be a fairly difficult job for a beginner. Highly suggest obtaining a manual with specific directions. Disconnect battery, Make sure to remove intake plenium for clearance when jacking engine after disconnecting engine mounts, and losen only on the rear transmission mount. It will also be necessary to disconnect radiator connections hoses and transmission lines if automatic, on the safe side many people just remove the radiator all together to avoid damageing it with the engines bottom pulley when lifting/jacking engine. The engine will have to be lifted enough to facilitate the removal of the oil pan. Caution, sometimes the oil pump/ pick up screen tube assy. will have to be disconnected before the pan will clear these can just be dropped into the pan. Also, it is not uncommon to have to rotate the crank by the front pulley in order to get the cranks throws to clear the pan as well. Remember going back together you may have to slide the oil pan in place first then put the new oil pump in. This will be tight work and you may do a lot of swearing! Caution again never work in these close areas without supporting the engine on some wooden blocks! I have used short pieces of 4x4's in the past, make sure the engine is securely supported. Remember when going back together to retighten everything you loosend make a list. Before doing all this work please do an oil pressure check and not just rely on the gauge as an indicator to change the oil pump. Also, if an engine has not been serviced regularly the engine oil pan could have a build up of sluge blocking the oil pump's pickup screen therefore decreasing the oil pressure. God Bless
Your oil pump is mounted to the underside of your engine block, inside the oil pan. To say it is buried would be an understatement. Depending on clearance to remove your oil pan, you may have to pull the engine to gain access.
