To replace the fuel pump you have to take out the rug from the back to gain access to the cover for the pump and sending unit. On the left side access panel is the sending unit. On the right access is the fuel pump. You have to releave the pressure in the lines. There are three lines. Mark which one goes on where. I find taking a picture when you have them marked and before disconnected helps. Disconnect the battery and leave it off until you have finished. Disconnect the electrical power connection. Remove the fuel pimp mounting bolts. Once everything is disconnected and marked lift the fuel pump up out of the fuel tank. Then you can change the fuel pump or get a complete unit with new screen to put in. Reassemble in reverse using the picture so the right hose goes on the right tube.
