its not hard to remove. Remove 3 bolts holding the bowl to the engine valley, unhook the rubber lines connecting the bowl to the fuel pump, and any harnesses to the bowl. Cant recall if its easier to unbolt the fuel regulator from the bowl or the fuel lines to the regulator ... either way...remove the bowl. While the bowl is out, replace any of the rubber lines if they need it (frayed, real soft, etc).

I had dirt and build-up in the bottom of mine too an I just opened my drain valve and dumped diesel in it while poking around in the bottom with a long flat tip screwdriver and it cleaned it out good! Just gotta be careful of the heater element in there.

Be ready to replace the 3 fuel lines going between the fuel bowl and the fuel pump. My stock ones were hard and brittle. Pick you up some FUEL INJECTION line at autozone (3/8" and 5/16") and just cut them to the same size. Then you'll be set for any future leaks. I get that buildup too. I cleaned it out when I replaced my fuel pump but I also put a paper towel on the end of a stick from time to time and clean it out still in the truck too. Good luck!
