Do I have to drop the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump on a 1997 kia sportage?

There is a hatch under the rear seat(covered with carpet) that gives you access to the fuel pump. To replace the pump takes is about .8 hours labor. I think the website to look for information is www.kiainfotech.com its free and is Kias own website with lots of tech info. (sorry I am not sure if I have exact web address).
