nope, i cut a hole it in trunk. it was stupid i know, but i was feeling awefully lazy and dangerous that day, i saw how rusted the straps were, so i used an air saw and i made a removable access panel in the trunk. I only have $500 in this car so i really didnt care. it made it quick and easy.

I've seen that hole cut out here before. As long as your careful, you will be fine.

With black fuel coming out of the filter, fuel that Dirty was in your Fuel Rails & Injectors. A pressure port cleaner adapter and a can of Injector cleaner screwed on to the fuel rail could not hurt.

I have thought about cutting a hole in the trunk floor if I ever had to change the fuel pump. Many cars have access ports in the trunk floor for easy access to the fuel pump.. I think GM started putting them in at the factory after about yr 2000 or so..

Cutting a hole is not as easy as it seems.......there are fuel "modules" and there are fuel "assemblies".....modules disconnect right at the module.....assemblies usually have metal fuel lines attached at the top, and require a much larger hole to remove.....on older vehicles, just removing these rusted metal lines can make them leak......there is also the possibility of cutting these lines while making the hole.....so you should know what you are doing and dealing with....

A solution not mentioned often: Get a battery operated Sawz-All with a good metal blade (the Torch by Milwaukee brand is my preference). Find a 2001-2005 LeSabre or Bonneville in a salvage yard. Cut out the trunk floor in a area around the access panel. You can them cut your trunk floor out larger using the new floor to seal the hole. Some body seam sealer and self tapping sheet metal screws with hex heads will do the job.

The advantage of having a larger hole is you can often get rusty lines disconnected with out snapping them. Here in Ohio the risky part of any Tank Drop is line damage. Not to mention straps fasteners stripping.

That'* why on 1988-1998 Chevy trucks often the bed is removed here to change the fuel pump.
