I have not pulled my fuel pump, (dreading that day), so I donít have good answers for you on that operation.
I do know the hose clamps are special Mercedes clamps that require special pliers...like you have room for pliers up there!
Most DIY types get a high quality screw type hose clamp, with a smooth inside surface, and make life simple. The old ones get cut or pried off...donít plan to save them.
The other plastic zip tie Ďstrapí for the fuel line may be a speed nut. Meaning it just pushes on, but needs to be pried off. Which may damage it. Again, I have not had to do this, and am not looking at it, so I most likely am wrong. If you send a picture I could improve my luck.
Keep asking questions. Maybe Rudeney can chime in. Search to see if anyone else has done this. And donít forget to look on eBay for removed parts that might provide the answer.
