Under the rear seat you will find the loom that runs to the sender
carefully peel off the furry insulation.
Carefully pull out the big grommet being careful not to put too much pressure on the loom.
The foam insulation that covers the sender needs to be cut along the perforation with a sharp knife.
Now remove the domed cover over the sender using a Pozi-drive screwdriver.
Once the cover is removed use a paint brush to clean the area around and under the sender plate.
It is important at this stage that all the doors are opened, otherwise a build-up of petrol fumes could be hazardous.
The sender can be removed using an adjustable pipe-wrench , just a quarter of a turn does it.
The fuel sender wiggles out of the hole, do not apply any force as this wiggles out easily. If the area was clean, fitting the new sender is straight-forward, however, I spent a little time trying to keep dirt getting in the tank.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
