How to remove Fuel Pump

Asked by Jan 03, 2015 at 01:38 PM about the 2004 Buick LeSabre Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have accessed the fuel pump through the access in the trunk but when I go to pull the pump it will not come out. It seems the pump is just a fraction larger that the opening. I just need to replace the fuel level sensor so my Daughter is not stuck on the side of the road out of fuel. HELP
