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.
