What is the easiest way to change out my fuel pump? Car runs fine but if it is driven a good distance it needs to sit for an hour or so before it will restart. I am assuming it's because the fuel pump got hot and needs time to cool down. Is there a way to go through the trunk or back seat to change it out? I'm needing to do this asap so I would appreciate an anwser at your earliest convience.

Fuel tank must be dropped to gain acess to the pump. No short cuts here
