The electric fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. Lift up the rear carpet in the load area and you should see a round plate , remove the screws and then the plate. There will be the fuel pump along with the fuel pick up and sensor for the guage. Turn the big round plastic outer ring anti clockwise and then the electric connection and fuel pipes. now it can be removed. Refit is reversal of removal.Are you sure the pump is faulty, did you check the fuse. If the fuse is ok , then gain access to the fuel pump, but before removing, get a test lamp and see if you have power getting to the pump, using the electric connection, try with just the contact first and also with the engine cranking/turning over. This will erradicate any misdiagnosis , wether its the pump or an electric installation problem.
Hope this helps

Where do I locate the fuel pump of the Land Rover Discovery 11 TD5 ?

I think the access is under the carpet in the rear cargo area. You have to remove the trim to get the carpet up, or just cut the carpet to access the fuel pump cover like I did in my truck -- (I didn't care about keeping it perfect, so I cut a flap in the carpet to get to the fuel pump access cover)
