Default facet fuel pump replacement

Is there room to replace the facet fuel pump w/o removing the fuel tank or anything but the access panel in the floor?

I am going to say yes. It's a little tight.... may need to remove an inspection panel on the bottom too ...

Default replacing electric fuel pump

I just replaced my fuel tank (old sight gauge style finally started to leak) and decided to also replace the electric fuel pump (still running great at 300 hrs). I was able to get the pump out one of the inspection holes at the belly of the aircraft- not lots of room but doable! I used a crows foot wrench to loosen the fuel lines from the pump. Worked well! Enjoy!
