they are not too hard to replace
remove the 6 screws from the cover plate on the boot floor (under carpet, lh side)
remove large hose clamp that holds the retaining ring on.
remove wiring plugs and fuel lines (push plastic ring towards pump and gently pull the hose out of the sender)
the retainer ring can sometimes be awkward, tight too.
i have removed the ring on a couple of cars using a large flathead screwdriver and hammer, just tap it around anticlockwise
there is a tool shown in the gregorys manuals etc that u can make and this makes it easier.
once retainer is removed carefully lift pump out of tank, watching not to bend the sender unit arm.
the pump has a tab and usually a zip tie holding it to the sender, bend the tab back slightly on the top end, theres a rubber coupling which can be pushed back and the pump should pivot out

if you pull the pump out you can check it on your battery just add a couple of wires to the two plugs then hold them onto the battery if its works its good if nothing its dead the clip that looks like a radiator clip on the big black thing that unsrews is a b**ch to get off i normally use a screw driver and force it off it it doesent remove easy then throw it away it doesent need it when put it all back together.. Also before connecting to your battery just make sure you dont have petrol dripping out of it.

I also once made a tool to remove the black cover but found it useless so just used a big set of multi grips to twist it off.

if you need another pump you can find them in the for sale section for around 10 - 15 dollars

cheers

Mate if you put the wire on the wrong way the pump will not pump fuel try changing the wires around. Remove the supply hose connector get someone to turn the ignition on you should hear the pump working and petrol will flow if the pump is working and no fuel change the wires around also check the pickup filter on the end of the pump. If you didnot change it it could be blocked
If there is no noise it could be a faulty relay under the water recovery bottle.
