    * Remove evaporative loss flange. See: Fuel Tank Unit\Service and Repair
    * Slacken fuel pump feed hose to fuel tank securing clip.
    * Disconnect hose from fuel tank stub pipe.
    * Undo and remove fuel pump mounting brackets to surge pot securing bolts.
    * Displace and remove fuel pumps and feed hose assembly from fuel tank.
    * Slacken feed hose assembly to fuel pump securing clips.
    * Remove fuel pumps from the feed hose assembly.
    * Remove link leads from fuel pumps.
    * Cut and remove ratchet straps securing upper clamp rubbers to to the fuel pumps.
    * Displace and remove upper clamp rubbers from the fuel pump mounting brackets and discard.
    * Remove the mounting brackets from the fuel pumps.
