Are you referring to the lift pump in the fuel tank or the camshaft driven tandem pump mounted on the end of the cylinder head?

If it's the lift pump in the tank then I believe there's a handy access flap in the floorpan which you access by removing (some of) the rear seats and lifting part of the carpet in the area of the offside rear door, this saves the PITA job of dropping the fuel tank from the underside of the vehicle.

The lift pump and fuel gauge sender are all accessed through the flap in the floor.
