So I just bought my first mkIII (86) and everything works ok except for the fuel pump. I need to replace it but I have no way of removing the tank. The car is sitting on grass that isn't very level and I really don't want to die before I'm able to drive my new baby. Is there any way to carefully cut a hole in the location of the pump to remove and replace it? Or would it just be easier to dig a trench under that area of the car and remove the tank?
