Sorry - I should have been clearer - the EML came on before I unplugged the MAF after going for a bit of a drive to test the thing out on the road - but it has remained on obviously through removing the MAF and re-connecting it.

Yes - the pressure gauge has a flexible hose - I can try that. What's the betting this is just the fuel pump which is what many of you told me in the first place - but it looks a big of a dog to get out with the towbar strengthening in place!

there is an access panel in the boot to get to the fuel pump
which shouldn't be obstructed by the towbar bracketry.

The towbar I fitted certainly didn't go across the access panel.

The factory tow bars have a plate that bolts through the boot floor, but no telling what aftermarket bodgery has done.

The plate is only held by four screws, so undoing three should allow access as the plate can then be pivoted to one side ;)
