Does anyone have specific knowledge of the procedure for removing & replacing the fuel pump for a 1996 DeVille (w/Northstar)? Also, is it true that the access panel to the pump is located under the rear seat, thus eliminating the procedure of "dropping" the tank?

You need to drop the tank.

Pay particular attention to the wiring harness that is on the tank and inside the tank to the pump. It is often melted and damaged as the pump shorts out and fails....other wise you may get to drop the tank again and replace the wiring harness when the new pump doesn't work.... Search in the archives under "fuel pump" and there is more info....
