FPR removal tips

Has anyone out there removed the FPR?

It looks like it is secured to the fuel rail by three 4mm hex bolts.

Trouble is, the bolts are upside down and hard to get to. It looks like I will have to trim the hex key just to reach the bolts!

Might be better off taking off the fuel rail. How hard is that?

Thanks again,

Dan

OK, I got the FPR replaced.

I took out the two 8mm bolts securing the RH fuel rail to the intake manifold.
No need to disconnect the fuel line. I couldn't anyway despite having the tool (plastic).
This gave me enough wiggle room to get a 4mm hex key in to replace the unit.
I also disconnected the top radiator hose and heater hoses (from the matrix) to make more room.
Very fiddly!
