OK so all the sand is out, now lift up on the lateral pipe till you can reach inside the tank with your other hand and the laterals themselves either unscrew from the stand pipe and lateral base or they fold upwards allowing you to lift the old pipe and laterals out and if they un-screw then you need to unscrew them and screw the new ones in while both arms are inside tank. It stinks I know but that is the only way to do it.
