If i remember right, the pump itself costs around $80 and around 10-15 mins to change. If it is a sedan, it is in the boot, underneath the carpet (close to back of boot). You will see an "access" hatch. Undo the 10 odd screws holding it down, undo locking ring, undo plastic cap and then u will see the pump and be able to go from there

If you're not totally sure yourself the pump is cactus, might be worth 5 mins to confirm this:
Earth the far right top pin of the diagnostic connector, switch ignition on, and listen for the pump operating - this tests the pump and the associated relays. If you're not sure about the diagnostic connector, have a look at Xyphoid's photo gallery - a diagram and pinout's is there.
Hope this helps . . . .

i used to have an ea that did one and it ended up costing a fair amount. bout 300 hundred fitted( dont hold me to that cause i cant remember). you could always get another one from the wreckers but it prob wont last that long. i wouldnt change it my self cause its in the actual fuel tank and that can be dangerous

"lost the fuel pump" pfft nrma are wankers! how can u "loose" a fuel pump? the one u are thinkin of in the boot is the fuel SENDER and the pump is (usually) electric on ef-el, just follow the fuel lines and should go into somwere, not sure cuz im not to sure on newer cars but the fuel SENDER is in the boot and the fuel pump is under the bonnet, if the fuel pump needs to be replaced it will cost you roughly 200 (for an electric) but personally NRMA are pulling ur leg... tell them the fuel pump is still there lol but i cant really help you cuz i need more info on the situation

um, the fuel pump IS in the fuel tank. they are electric. you are thinking of mechanical fuel pumps which are driven off a lobe usually attached to a cam shaft in some way they are in the engine bay. its not uncommon for these to go. you will know if its died by just turning the key to the ignition spot and listen for the fuel pump prime. if it doesnt make any noise chances are the relay has gone or the pump itself.

its easy to change your self, the most difficult part is getting the large hoseclamp off the black ring then all you do is use a blunt flat blade screwdriver and tap the ring of anti clockwise. once thats done undo the fuel lines (mark which is which) and the plugs then remove the assembly. once out just unclip the 2 wires and the screw and remove the old one. install is reverse of removal..(duh)
