Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion Discussion, Fuel Pump removal in Cadillac Engine Technical Discussion; All the 1999 STS manual says I need a collar ring removal tool to get the fuel sending assembly out ...
You should probably post this in the Seville/Eldo forum. The job can be done without the tool from what I have seen posted but you need to be careful about pounding the ring out. You will also need a new gasket.

Out of the hundreds I have done I have used many methods and never had a concern of sparks.
It isn't really a spark generating process.
Be sure to have something handy, like a fire extinguisher just in case but....
