I have never replaced a a fuel pump on this particular car but I have change a few. It is my experience the way to go about it is to drop the tank to change the pump. One suggestion before you decided to tackle this job (not hard but alot of work) make sure the fuel pump is bad. I don't know your level of experence or the availablility to tools but here are some things to check first. Check to see if the pump is running by turning the key to the on postion and listen to see if you can hear if the pump is running. ( You will hear it humming for few seconds and then stop) If you can't hear it running check the fuel pump fuse to see if it is blown. And at last, check the fuel pump relay and see if it is operating. This is probably located under the hood. If you have someone turn the key to the on postion and place a finger on the relay you should be able to feel and hear it click. If you have a fuel pressure tester you an hook it up and see if the is enough pressure to run the car.
Good luck Backyardmechanic :)
