156 Fuel pump removal

Can one access the fuel pump by removing the rear seat, ie from above through the floor, without removing the tank?

I have a dead fuel gauge for years now that needs fixing, and want to start looking at the sender unit first.

Yep, remove the rear seat, take off the cover panel and it's all below there.

alfa 156 2001

Hey smaky,
been looking through the forum and you seem to know your stuff, I would apprecaite if you could give me your opinion on my problem.

I jumped into my alfa 156 1.6 2001 to pop to the shops and it drove down perfectly fine as it has since i got it two months ago. when I got back in it just wouldn't start just kept cranking I tried jumping it and push start. nothing, connected a diagnostic to it and it threw up errors - p1176 - p1173 - u1600. I tried clearing them and they cleared and did not come back but it still wont start. its just cranking. I had a mechanic who's a friend have a quick look at it and he said there is no fuel getting to the engine. He also couldn't hear the fuel pump on start up.

I ran out of fuel about a week ago, if thats any help. there is 60,000 on the **** and timing belt was done at 35k. We were thinking fuel pump might be gone, and he says crank sensor is also very common

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Running out of fuel can damage fuel pumps on fuel injected cars. The fuel itself is the lubricant in these pumps. Happened to me on a Toyota, and a new pump was called for.
