Re: 2002 Dodge Neon Fuel Pump Replacement
HI.Your fuel pump is an integrated part of the pump module, which also contains the fuel reservoir, level sensor, inlet strainer and fuel pressure regulator. The inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator and level sensor are the only serviceable items. If the fuel pump requires service, replace the entire fuel pump module.
There is no access panel. You will need to, slightly, drop the fuel tank, in order to extract the module for replacement. This module it mounted on-top of the tank. the module is inserted into the tank.

This is some shots of me making my access panel for my fuel pump in my 86 Trans AM. The fuel tank is a 2002 plastic fuel tank. You'll notice ...
Oldsmobile Alero cars & trucks access fuel pump trunk questions and ... Some cars have an access panel in the trunk under the carpeting, near the back seat on the ... is there an access to the fuel pump beside dropping the tank not unless you cut a ... ...no access hole you have to take the fuel tank out to replace the pump.
I believe that the panel you speak of leads to the top of the fuel tank, which will have another panel held on to the tank with a bunch of screws. Remove and pull out the pump assembly. Before replacing the pump, check for power to the pump with a test light while someone is cranking the engine. Fuel pump relay problems are not uncommon on these so you may want to replace that as well or first because the pumps are quite expensive. When you are checking for power at the pump, make sure the opening to the tank is covered well with rags. You don't want any sparks near gas vapor
All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.
By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.
It is in the gas tank. Accessed through the back seat. there is a rubber seal between the gas tank access panel. Replace it otherwise you'll smell gas fumes when you're all done, and then you'll have to quit smoking. Who wants to do that....all in the same day. Get your pump online. YOu'll pay half. One pump fits a zillion bmw models. no need to replace the sending unit either.
Your sending unit has failed and needs to be replaced. It's an assembly attached to the fuel pump inside the gas tank. In your trunk floor or under your rear seat is an access panel, through which you can get to the pump and sending unit. You'll need to replace it and then you'll be good to go.
My 2002 Impala has the panel in the trunk. I took the panel off and the fuel pump is accessible. I will probably attempt to replace the fuel pump myself since the fuel gauge does not work anymore and the dealership indicated that the problem was the fuel level float connected to the fuel pump.
Does anyone know if there is anything special I need to do prior to replacing the fuel pump, such as draining the fuel, etc...? I was planning to at least run the car until I was near empty.
