Help me please!

I have a 1986 BMW 325 and my car all of a sudden stopped working. I tried turning it over but it starts then dies after two seconds. I've called auto shops and so far I've been told it's the fuel pump. However, where is the fuel pump located? I just need to know exactly where so if it's outside the gas tank I can do it myself.

Thanks

Before you go replacing an expensive part, why not start with the cheaper ones, and the ones that tend to fail first. Have you tested the fuel pump fuses and fuel pump relay?

The fuel pump is located under the rear seats. Removal of the gas tank is not required to replace the pump. Remove the rear seats, and have someone try to start the vehicle. You should be able to hear the pump priming.
