Is there an easier way to replace my intank fuel pump? Is there a porthole under the back seat or something to get to the gas tank without having to disassemble the underneath of my car? Also I was told that I could buy an "external" type electric fuel pump I can just hook up to the fuel line, is this true? Thanks

It's under the seat here are directions.
Release fuel pressure. See FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE. Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove rear seat cushion. Remove rubber grommet from floor pan. Clean area to prevent contamination in fuel tank. For vehicles without returnless fuel systems, go to next step. For vehicles with returnless fuel systems, go to step 3.
NOTE:Fuel feed line connectors are White or are identified by a White band. Fuel return line connectors are Red or are identified by a Red band.

Returnable Fuel System
Disconnect fuel pump module connector. Disconnect fuel feed and return lines from fuel pump module by squeezing tabs on fuel lines together and carefully pulling fuel lines from fuel pump module. Using Fuel Tank Sender Wrench (D84P-9275-A), turn retainer ring counterclockwise and remove retainer ring. Remove fuel pump module. Cover fuel tank opening. Remove and discard "O" ring.
