if i recall the fuel sender is accesible through the backseat however you must drop the tank to replace the pump.

I kno you must drop the tank for the 90-91to change the pump. So unless its diffrent for the 88-89 and you can change it from inside the car idk. But I'm pretty sure your gonna have to drop the tank

On the 88-91 civic and crx, you have to drop the tank. I am 1000% certain of this. They changed it for the 92+ because it was such a PITA. Sorry in advance.. the faq section has details on how to make it as painless as possible though.
