Default what year did they start putting access fuel pump panels in

Dealer told me that it was 1997 and up for Park Aves and 2000 and up for Lesabres and Pontiacs. He said there is a panel in the trunk with 7 screws that you lift and underneath is the sending unit and you can remove the fuel pump,great idea no more dropping the tank

Yeah, after seeing one of those I considered drilling a hole in my trunk to make my fuel pump swap easier.

Good question. I need to replace the pump in my car and dread dropping the tank.

Anyone know for sure?

2000+ Bonnevilles have the access plate in the trunk to service the fuel sending unit.
On the years prior Bonnivilles you have to remove the fuel tank.
