Does anyone know the easiest way to change these?
VT Commodore sedan, V6. Apparently you can change the fuel pump without
having to remove the tank, but I'm buggered if I can see how. There is no
room between the tank and the boot floor for me to get my hands around the
tank and there doesn't appear to be any removable trap-doors in the boot
floor.

Any idea's or advice would be appreciated.

Go to BigW or Kmart and buy a repair manual for your make of vehicle,would
be lost without mine.Also can save you allot of the folding stuff in the
end.

Take it to a Holden dealer, they'd be able to do it in their sleep.

I don't know about that, some simple things are hard when they're awake. As
for the pump, it should be replaceable without removing the tank, i've done
a VL once. Was a bitch of a job, only tip I can give is make sure the tank
is as empty as you can get it, or have a tray ready when you break the seal
around the pump, fuel will go everywhere.

Early Commodores you didn't have to drop the tank but on VT you certainly do
have to.

Thousands were done on VT under warranty, Pesty is right on this one.

Completely different tank. On VT the tank needs to be dropped, the lock ring
removed and the whole assembly lifts straight out.

Not on VT.
