What are the steps to follow to replace fuel pump on 1.6L GLX? Does the fuel tank need to be removed?

I believe you remove the back seat of the car and there should be an access panel to get to the fuel pump

Well while in the u pick yard there was an Esteem witht he seats out and there was no access hole through the floor pan under the rear seat. It appears that you must remove the gas tank. I believe I confirmed this at the dealer also. I was there getting the printout of the gas tank as I have a rusted tank and wanted to know were the culprit was. It is the tank that fails normally in Montreal.
I am aware this is an old post, but some do searches and this is to help those that do searches.

Smile 98 GLX fuel pump replace

Hi, I know this is an old post, but I just went through this myself on a wagon model. The info I had said you had to remove the rear seat cushion, right rear seat back, and the trim and scuff panels to get to the fuel lines to disconnect them before you could drop the tank and get to the fuel pump.

I don't know about the sedan model, this may be correct, but on the SW model you'd be wasting your time as there is no reason to do this whatsoever. Once you remove the parts of the exhaust system that are in the way, you can simply disconnect the fuel lines from the tank, pop out the wiring harness clips from the center rear and right rear to provide slack, disconnect the filler neck hose and vent hose, then remove the hangers and drop the tank down, disconnect the electrical at three places and pull the tank out from under the car. If it's on jack-stands or ramps, there is more than enough slack in the wiring harness to get the tank down. From there, there are either 6 or 8 screws holding the fuel pump in place.

I still have no idea why All-Data's instructions say to take out half of the interior on the SW model, but it was completely unnecessary. I did find out that my two rear speakers need replaced though, so it wasn't a complete waste of time - just mostly a waste. Not the first instance All-Data has been wrong.
