2 Disconnect the battery negative lead.

3 Identify the fuel hose locations, as an aid to refitting. Note that there are three hose connections on models without a fuel flow sensor unit, and two hose connections on models with a fuel flow sensor unit.

4 Disconnect and plug the fuel hoses.

5 Remove the two securing screws and withdraw the regulator.

Refitting
6 Refitting is a reversal of removal, ensuring that the fuel hoses are correctly connected. If the hoses were originally secured with crimped type clips, discard them and use new worm drive clips.
