Default Replacing fuel pump?

Ok the fuel pump died off in my 99 mazda 626 and it's in the tank. and to possibly avoid having to pay someone else to do the job. i'm thinking i might have a try at it.
does anyone have any tips that may help me do this? from what i am understanding is that i need to remove the various hoses(also with the help of a shop rag to prevent gas from spewwing) and other connections. remove the three braces that hol the tank in and make sure i have some form of support for the tank itself. i have about half a tank thaat i know i will most likely have to siphon out. once it's down remove the fuel pump: and replace. and i was told i may also need a new strainer? is it as simple as it sounds or shoul i get someone else to do it? i'm broke and the fuel pump will cost me 99.99 new.

but i can go to my local pull:aart and get one there for like 17 bux. should i do that? will it work if i get it from there?

thanks much!

ray

If you are pulling a fuel pump, I would just do a new one. Stops you from doing it again.

I definitely wouldn't pay someone to do it, its not that hard it just takes time. And definitely spend the extra money to buy new.

Buy new, they come with a strainer, you should replace the fuel filter while you are in there and it takes about 5 minutes to change the fuel pump once you have the tank down.

Might check and make sure you absolutely have to drop the tank. Lots of cars have access panels on the inside to get to them without dropping the tank.

And my fuel pump costs $320 so stop crying.

Doing this on the ground really sucks man.Look under the bottom portion of the rear seat to see if there is an access panel.Buy new,never get a fuel pump at a junkyard.

92 is correct;most come with strainers.
