Default Fuel pressure sensor V8 engine

Today I tried to replace the fuel pressure sensor on my S80 2008 V8, the problem is that it has a bolt with a captive retaining nut, it spinning freely in its recessed home in the plastic housing. I did not want to continue on at this time and I assembly all again in his place. I would appreciate if someone has experienced this problem, I would like to remove the base where the fuel sensor is mounted, it has two 10 mm bolts and It has two hoses to the fuel pipe, is it ease to remove this base ? Are the two hoses easy to be taken out just by pulling?
I would appreciate any help about it

Thanks in advance

I am having the same issue where the bolt holding the fps is just spinning... how to remove without taking off too many other parts? Intake and throttle body are out of the way, wondering the same thing about removing the base where the fps is mounted, at least a safe way to do this without removing too many other parts. Saw this thread and scares me that I might break something, is there any other way?

Any help is most appreciated!

I solved the problem, in a not very orthodox way, I cut the part where is the bolt in the new sensor and in the one installed, then I installed the new one making a new support arm using a bolt that already exist for the other side where the sensor fit. I now it is not a "good" work but I think I will change it correctly next time I need to remove all the others parts, if it happens.
