Fuel Pump Location and Access

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model: 911E; Year: 1969; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.0L MFI; Total Mileage: 180,000 kilometers;

I've had the car for 7-8 years and the fuel pump has always been noisy. The last 3 or 4 times I've driven the car the noise has increased substantially; the squalling sound can be heard over the engine. I'm assuming that it's time for replacement. My reading tells me that the fuel pump is the roller cell type (unfortunately, by far the most expensive). My question is where exactly is it located? I know it's in the front of the car - it's plenty loud enough to be sure of that. The Haynes manual says it is "mounted on a bracket on the support member under the fuel tank" but there are no pictures or other information. I've looked under the car but can't see where it is. How do I access it? Is it difficult to change? Would you agree that it's time to replace it? Also, I've read where you have mentioned a "weak fuel pump" in response to other questions - is it possible that replacing the pump will improve the car's performance? I appreciate any information you can provide,Thanks, Steve Bacon
