fuel pump replacement on 82 deville
Is there a trap door in the trunk to replace the fuel pump, or do I have to drop the tank? My tank is full btw. If dropping the tank is the only way, does anyone have any tricks to share?

Siphon the fuel into another car. Drop tank to remove sending unit with pump attached. Make sure to replace the "sock" filter on the sender. I let my tank down from the back with the straps still attached at the front. The tank stayed under the car at an angle.
