Do you have to drop the fuel tank to replace the sending units on a 94 Legacy wagon? I was under the impression that you didn't have to, but looking under the seat tonight, I didn't see any way to get access to the top of the tank. Am I wrong, or am I missing something? Thanks.

On my '91 AWD automatic there are two access covers in the trunk up near the rear seat back. Not sure if a change was made for you guys with new cars. Pull out the carpet and you should see them.

Thanks for the info. I pulled up the carpet today and saw the two access covers, one on each side. Does the fuel sending unit on the passenger side mount to the fuel pump?

With AWD, there are two sending units as you seem to be aware. I believe the passenger side has the pump. It's the larger, oval assembly, not the round one.

I replaced both sending units today. With the exception of one stubborn hose, it was a relatively painless operation. Before I started the guage read about 1/4 tank. Afterwards, it read between 1/2 and 3/4. So, the operation appears to be a success. Thanks for everyones help.
