It is located in the fuel tank, so you have to drop the tank to gain access to it.

Is there a place in the trunk floorboard to get to the pump without dropping the tank?

Nope, the engineers weren't that concerned about working on it, so you have to drop the tank to get to the fuel pump.

LeSabres from 2002-2005 all have the access panel. You can check but I am sure he is right that the tank has to be emptied and then dropped.

I have a 97 LeSabre, haven't had to replace fuel pump (yet), but have done it in Fords, with no access panel. I cut (carefully) a square access opening under rear seat (from inside car) right above pump access in fuel tank (measure real carefully, keep fire extinguisher handy.) Epoxy the panel you cut back in place. MUCH easier...should work ion Buick??
