Default Easiest Way To Replace Fuel Pump

Anyone know a simple way to replace a fuel pump in a 2002 cavalier? If you have an '03 I'm sure you know how. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

There is no easy way. Either you remove the tank or you dont, you can guess which option will not allow you to replace it.

I have seen some cars that you can remove it from inside the car if you remove the back seats, but im pretty sure our cavvies cant.

Follow the how to above.
It's pretty simple and anyone can do it.
That's why I did the how to so that anyone can follow it, do it, and save them a sh*tload of money.
So go ahead and do this and let us know how it goes.
Good luck.

Yup, it's a PITA to remove the tank. And gasoline weighs 7 lbs per gallon, plus the weight of the tank and all the pump assembly and all. So it's preferred to have as little gas as possible when doing a fuel pump.

Cars that are easy.
Honda Civic's have the access panel below the rear seat to get to the gas tank. 97-03 Pontiac Grand Prix' have an access panel in the trunk to get to the gas tank.

Or if you got a lot of money, there is an easy way.. get the parts (around $250), bring it to the local shop let them charge you $150 for labor and in 2 hours, problem solved. Lol i just did these steps this morning. I was too busy to do it myself and I ended up paying the amount.
