Caution: Refer to the precautions in Section 1 before proceeding.

Removal
1 On SOHC models, the vapour separator is located on the left-hand side of the engine compartment. On CVH models, the vapour separator is located on the right-hand side of the engine compartment (see illustrations).

2 Disconnect the battery negative lead.

3 Identify the fuel hose locations as an aid to refitting, then disconnect and plug the hoses.

4 Remove the two securing screws and withdraw the vapour separator.

Refitting
5 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.
