Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is there a way to get at the gas tank sending unit without dropping the fual tank?
Car sat for 4 years and I can't get the fuel pump/ sending unit to work and I don't want to drop the tank if I don't have to.
I checked the fuses wigglied all the wires, but can't get at the sending unit.

If you remove the centre console/armrest, just behind the the shifter there are access points for the sender. IF you need to do any work on the pump though, you have to drop the tank.
