Angry Removal of Fuel Pump

I need to replace my fuel pump. I have no access to a lift. Not enough money to get it done at a shop, were as im in between jobs.

I was wondering what the best way to replace the fuel pump in my driveway would be. Also if there are any access holes in the trunk, or under the rear seats. The only jack i have is the one that came with the car, might be able to get my hands on a floor jack.

Any tips/tricks would be appreciated, Thank you in advance

As far as I know you have no access door. Your best bet is to get some ramps and get the back end up. To jack up the car is simply not safe without jack stands. So if you do jack it up use stands. Then you will need to undo the straps and lower the tank. You can do this with a jack and a piece of wood between the jack and tank. Best to do it when the tank is as empty as possible. So time that out.

I'm guessing it'* in the tank like most of the 90'* GM I can think of. If so that really sucks and means you have to drop the tank to get to it.

Do not work under just a floor jack for christ'* sake. At least get a set of ramps at autozone for $20.
Also j/w do you regularly run the tank below 1/4?
