    Be wary of fuel pumps being diagnosed as faulty.
    Sometimes it is not the actual fuel pump which is at fault, but the EDU (the fuel pump's ECU), which is attached to the fuel pump which has malfunctioned.

    It is very easy to replace the whole setup amd waste around £300 (2nd hand price), when all that may be needed is a bit of re-soldering on an EDU dry joint (£50 max to get someone else to check and re-solder).

    Of course, if the EDU is faulty the fuel pump will be affected and throw up a fault code. The fault code will point to a faulty fuel pump when the truth may be something else.
