View Full Version : I have a dumb question

Everyone says it's possible to remove the fuel pump with the tank attached.

On my old 89 GT, I had to drop the tank.

On the GTS, I have to drop the tank. The port under the rear seat allows access to the sending unit and float, but the pump is actually back like 6" under another hump (where there should be a panel IMO).

Should I just quit trying shortcuts and drop the f*ing tank all the way? If I remove the floats, I can reach in the tank and grab the pump, but there's the spash dealio stuff in the way so I can't really remove it fully.

just drop the tank. in a FWD it cannot be done on the car.

Must be 4th gens & older regarding the need to drop the tank to change the pump. On 5th gens at least, there is only 1 cover on the tank, and this gives access to remove the sending unit assembly and pump together, so the tank does not need to be dropped.

We had to drop the tank on Ryan's '89 GTS. Was not possible without doing it.

All the above 4th Geners are right. I, too, dropped the tank.
