Replacing your vehicle's fuel pump isn't a difficult task, but it can be somewhat time-consuming. You're going to have to take apart the back seat of your car so that you can access the fuel tank, and then you'll need to unbolt and remove the pump so that you can replace it with the new one that you already have on hand. Be sure to have a screwdriver, a wrench set and a spanner wrench handy as well, as these tools are necessary for this task.

To start, enter the back seat of your car and remove the rear seat cushion by using the strap near the back of the seat. Just pull it and the door should follow. Then, open the access door panel and unplug the pump module connector by pushing the "lock" tab down and removing the first connector from its harness.

Start your vehicle's engine and let it run until it stalls. Don't do anything else; the vehicle must remain idle. Once it has stalled, you need to crank the engine for a few seconds then turn the ignition back off.

Grab a wrench and disconnect the black battery cable. After that's done, press on the lock tabs to disconnect the fuel supply, return and vapour lines from the pump. Your next step will be to unplug the fuel sender, again by pressing the lock tab and removing the connector from its harness. You can now remove the old fuel pump.

To install the new one, mount it onto the fuel sender and return it to its original position. Lock it in place and reconnect the connectors and supplies. Close the access panel door, reinstall the seat cushion, and reconnect the black battery cable.

You should now be the proud owner of a successfully-replaced fuel pump.
Hey,it isn't that difficult but may require a little time! The fuel pump for your vehicle is located inside the fuel tank,just drop the fuel tank and on the top you should see 5 bolts,just take them out and the fuel pump will come out!!! It will take approx. 2 hours depending on vehicle skill...can be done in about 45 minutes!! This should be of some help to you,let me know if I can be of more help to you!!!

What about the fuel filter?

Ummm, no.

The 2001 Accent has a "hatch" located under the rear seat (at least, the 2-door version does).
I just did my fuel filter today and it was a snap. Had the seat out, hatch open, new filter in and seat replaced in about 15 minutes.
The fuel pump is also accessible from the same location.

I guess you could take the tank out to get at it, but why?
