Im not entirely sure on the price... but depending on your knowledge its not an easy job. You have to de-pressurise the fuel tank and empty the fuel tank and you will find the fuel pump behind the fuel guage sender unit..

This recent thread tells you how to remove it from the fuel tank unit:

Heres the information I gave in the thread anyway... But before you get to this stage you must depressurise the fuel system and disconnect the negative battery terminal... Plus the rear of the vehicle must be raised and supported and then you have to empty the fuel tank with a hand pump or something.

Ok well Ya gotta disconnect the wiring connectors from the fuel guage sender unit and then loosen the hose clamp and remove the fuel hose hose from the fuel guage sender unit as well.

Then remove the retaining screws from the fuel guage sender unit and manouvre the sender unit and the fuel pump assembly from the fuel tank.
Disconnect the wiring from the fuel pump and remove the strainer from the fuel pump inlet.

Then ya just need to slide the pulsator along the pick-up tube until it is clear of the fuel pump outlet...then manouvre the fuel pump from the mounting bracket.
