Fuel pump replacement question

Ok so Iím at my dealer right now getting the fuel pump replaced under the recall and everything Iíve saw shows they have to drop the tank. My service guy just came to get me to remove the car seat in the back seat so they could access from the top ??? When I asked he said they donít drop the tank ???

That's pretty interesting.

I remember the late 90's chevy trucks having so many pump failures that an aftermarket company had a hatch made that you could cut into the bed of those trucks to replace the fuel pump without dropping the tank. I'm surprised that that Toyota build in some way to do this from the top. I'd hope that they're not cutting in a new access hole.

I've replaced fuel pumps in 3 different vehicles now and all of them had a "window" under the rear seat to access the fuel pump from the top.

I can't speak to the 4runner, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were the same way. (Looks like 4th gen is in the below video).

I still need to have my 2 open warranty (Airbag and fuel pump) done as well. lol

Thatís not a 5th gen. Iíve had vehicles that had an access too. Iím specifically talking about 5th gens. Everything Iíve seen is drop the tank. Just want to make sure my dealer is doing it correctly and not hacking up my vehicle

That video is kinda scary in terms of what people do to their cars. Dropping the fuel tank probably only takes 15 -20 minutes. I'm not sure they saved much work.

I said it was a 4th gen. I guarantee that same hole is in the same spot on the 5th gen and they are just doing it through there. Those guys cut the hole to just make it easier to pull it up through, which is ridiculous.

My guess is the dealer has done the fix through the window enough times now.

Yeah. Super ghetto. Now there's a huge hole that isn't covered up. Dude is gonna have squirrels in his truck one morning.

Just left the dealership and they said they remove the backseat and carpet and go from the top. Hmm. So Iím just trying to understand if they did it the way Toyota recommended? The dealership I normally go to said no they have to drop the tank. Anyone on here know for sure what the Toyota service and repair manual says to do ????

This vid shows dropping the thank. Doesn't look like there is an access panel from watching.

Post 63 has a good look with the carpet out, don't see a panel.

They are cutting a hole in your floor. Dont worry, the carpet will hide it.

Sarcasm is sometimes hard to detect online, so forgive me if I falsely assume you are serious. Cutting a hole in the floor is unacceptable. there is either a port to be accessed that is removable/replaceable or there isn't and the tank has to be dropped. My understanding is the tank has to be dropped on the 5th gen.
