Thank you! I've been looking for such a set up as this for our 1999 Tahoe.

I used your post and pics to cut access panel and change out fuel pump in 2001 Tahoe. My seat pan and seats were a little dofferent but other than that it went pretty smooth. For those having trouble with the gasket and locking ring when going back together, this is what I did. I put a coat of white lithium grease on the inside and outside of the seal and on the bottom surface of the locking ring. Holding downward pressure on the locking ring, I used a pry bar to spin into locking position.

Do u have any more pictures I got a 2001 Tahoe need to pull fuel pump because of gas gauge all over the place. I want to cut the access but just not sure of exact location I know behind drivers seat and under back passenger seat but just looking for more detail pic only want to cut once

In that case I'd definitely go with the access panel that's a lot of gas to unload

So I just went for it today. I cut the rug and pad under the seat first basically from the little hump near the bolt that holds the tire rod and forward to the front of the truck just before the metal drops down to where I put your feet. The width was from seat support to seat support. Just keep in mind not to plunge the grinder all the way thru. Removed metal and pump is right there. Ordered Dorman pump on eBay was like $62 will install maybe sat. To close it up I'll get some cross metal with self tapping screws and than silicone the cut to stop any air filtration. Not to worried since it's jamed above the tank and doesn't see water or snow

No unfortunately not. That is the only pic that I took. Have you done yours yet?

Good, glad you were able to access it. Lots better than dropping the tank. 👍👍

Well Sunday it was warm here so I got it all cut open to make sure I'd be able to get to it. I was scared cutting it I told my 13 old daughter here goes nothing lol I was able to get it all open and ordered a Dorman pump of eBay for $62 This coming sat it's suppose to be 60 out so I plan on doing it sat. I'm going to go to Lowe's to get some flat stock metal to brace the part I cut out. Than I'll silicone the cut after I screw back together
