    Under the rear seat. You need to remove the cushion.

    seriuosly, I did this with that same writeup. It took me less then 40 minutes. I highly recommend you do it outside and not in a garage. You will get a crap load of fumes. My recommendation: do it when you feul light comes on. The less fuel you have the better. You can always stop and get a gallon of gas in a gas can prior, and fill her up after the install is complete. The hardest part is the rotation it takes to get the pump assembly out of the hole. REMEMBER that exact same sequence to put it back! else you'll be scratching your head!

    2 bolts to take off the bottom of the seat, 4 to take off the back of the seat. Its located fairly central (peel the rear trunk carpet back) but closer to the passenger side. AND DON"T FORGET TO RELEIVE THE PRESSURE FIRST!!!

    It's easy. Pull the seats, open the cover on the passenger side, open the gas cap, BLOW OFF THE DIRT UNDER THE COVER, disconnect the electrical and gas lines, open the tank, carefully remove the pump assembly, replace the pump. Put everything back together.

    Also, if you are replacing it with a Walbro 255 you need to be careful not to let the tank drop below 1/4. The Walbro is cooled by the surrounding fuel and can burn up if it isn't cooled. Walbro doesn't warranty the pump either so it's up to you.

    Wow, I didn't know that....thanks for the tip! I got the pump without the instructions and such, so never knew that condition!

    Shouldn't be a problem. I usually don't let the tank go under 1/4 as it is. I don't like getting stranded places.

    Your fuel pump on the 06 went out as well? Interesting.
