Default Replace fuel pump without dropping tank

Has any one ever cut out an access hole in a 92-99 Bonneville to replace the fuel pump? Fuel pump has been working on its last leg, and today it has bit the dust..... I really don't want to drop it again.......Ryan

I just had to replace my fuel tank and it really isn't that bad of a job. There is not that much room between the floor and tank, so I would think you would do more damage than you want by trying to cut a hole. Perhaps when you drop the tank you could measure and cut a hole for future fuel pump fun
