There is not a removable panel under the back seat, but if the location is defined, an access panel can be cut. I was able to find location and dimensions on-line, and successfully cut a panel on a Z28 Camaro to remove a failed pump from above. This was much simpler and safer than dropping or trying to safely empty a tank full of gas. Is information (location and dimensions) available anywhere for cutting a fuel pump access panel on a 1997 Dodge Stratus?

Re: how to access the in-tank fuel pump from above
Cutting from above hasn't been recommended since on most vehicles their are supports that cause instability [locations under seats not trunk ] but the biggest problem is the cutting of the fuel lines / fuel tank and causing fire or explosion and as of now seems like no one has uploaded any dimensions for setting up an access panel on a stratus you can try asking an auto body shop if they have a repair diagram of area requested

Inside the fuel tank. Most imports will have an access panel. Look at where the fuel tank is from uder the car, the right above it should be the panel. Maybe either under the trunk carpet or under the back seat.
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.
If there is a access panel to the tank then yes, If not then the tank has to be dropted.If there is an access panel then it is under the back seat or under the carpet somewhere in the back of the car. Look under the car to see where the fuel tank is ,then look in the car above the tank. When removing the pump be carefull not to bend the fuel gauge float falve.Good luck
The fuel filter on a 2005 Hyundai Accent depending on where it was manufactured and when, is possibly external and on the outside of the fuel tank directly above the fuel pump and accessible by removing the back seat. Or it is actually inside the fuel tank and requires removing the back seat, the metal panel, the fuel pump itself and then accessing the filter. Your vin. no. can determine which model you have and of course how much work you'll have to do
The fuel filter location for a 2005 Hyundai Accent depends on where it was manufactured and when. It is possibly mounted external, on the outside of the fuel tank directly above the fuel pump and accessible by removing the back seat. The other possibility is that it is mounted inside the fuel tank and requires removing the back seat, the metal panel, the fuel pump itself and then accessing the filter.
