replaced mine quickly yesterday by going in from the left side, with the tank removed. i was able to use a long, slim box spanner, 10 mm at one end, 8mm the other. the 10mm end fits over the cable holding bolt, and an 8mm allen key was used to turn the other end. same in reverse, but use a piece of blutac to hold the bolt in the box spanner when reinserting.
