Usually a fuel pump can be replaced by getting under the vehicle and locating the fuel tank. Once the tank has been located, you should notice two or three metal straps that hold it in place against the chassis of the vehicle. These straps will have bolts on both sides that secure them to the vehicle. You will want to remove these bolts to lower the fuel tank down. You will then want to disconnect the hose that goes from the filler neck to the tank. Once this has been done, you can remove the electrical connectors and fuel lines that go from the fuel pump to the engine and PCM. Next, you can then remove the fuel pump for replacement. If you are in doubt about this repair, I would recommend enlisting the help of a professional to replace the fuel pump for you.
