Re: [DML] Fuel Accumulator Replacement - Stuck

Anywhere as long as you're happy about removing it, and throw it away.

A crowsfoot is basically the end of a spanner (sorry, spanner = wrench 
depending on the side of the atlantic!) with a drive socket in it. It's 
allows you to get onto things inaccessible with a spanner and where you 
can't put a socket. Here's the first hit on an ebay search

Yes - use a 17mm crowsfoot and an extension from underneath, and then 
your friend accesses the top through the interior under the change tray. 
There should be a plastic cover which can be removed without too much 
trouble. He/she will need to hold onto the top of the heard line where 
it connects to the flexible hose with a14mm spanner. It's a bit fiddly, 
but you only need to hold onto it to crakc it off, otherwise you will 
bend the hard line
