vps ap1 gave a pretty decent description on how to remove it. One thing I always do when I remove them is pull the fuel pump fuse and crank the engine over a couple times to help remove the excess fuel from the lines.
by crank you mean by starting the engine to pull the fuel through, not manually crank the engine?
when you buy one, is it just a filter or a filter-pump combo?
and another thing, seeing as only owned an s2000 a week! what part is the convertible top tray that vpsap1 referred to? I've not explored all round the car yet to know what everything is or looks like from memory. Just trying to work out what basic servicing I can do on it. so all help is appreciated.
