You have to get the rear of the car in the air, properly supported and remove/drop the gas tank. Syphon the fuel out to get to 1/4 full. Remove the old and install the new, th slink here is for a '99, should eb similar to your 2002..... Replace-a-Fuel-Pump-(1999-Ford-Taurus)-EricTheCarGuy.html


Dropping the tank was not in the cards for me. I opted for the path of least resistance so I cut a door in the back seat area big enough to get the job done. Pump-Gas-With-Sending-Unit-Ford-Taurus-02-03- E2313M-/162259540452
