How to access the in-tank fuel pump from above

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?

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

Where is the fuel pump for a 1989 honda accord located?


The fuel pump is mounted in the gas tank. If my memory serves me correctly, there should be an access panel under the rear seat bottom. If not accessable that way, you'll need to remove the gas tank.
