2003 Z4 3.0i fuel pump removal?

I have a UK spec 2003 on the year Z4 3.0i auto convertible in with 25 PSI rail pressure, anyone know how to access the fuel pump please? I can't get it on my ramp until Friday, but could do with knowing what sort of a job this is, thank you!

If it covers the coupes it's at least 07/2006.
