Question about 1997 Ford Ranger SuperCab
Drop fuel tank and replace fuel pump
Removal & Installation
Posted on Oct 26, 2009
Many of the Pontiacs of that era up to even present models had an access panel in the trunk that you could access through the back seat pass through.
Its been a while since I seen the inside of a Firebird, but in thinking about it the back seat pass through may not be present on the Firebird, but it may be worth the time to lift up the carpeting in the trunk area and see if there is an access panel to the fuel pump.

Yes you do. Be careful of the plastic fuel supply line when you reinstall the assembly. The hose can kink, and you will not have fuel pressure.

Yes, get a torch and burn a very large diameter hole through the trunk area and down into the gas tank. If you are still alive after the explosion, the pump will be right there and you can change it.

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)
