Hi,It's been a few months, but this is what I recall from memory.
I would drain the pressure from the sender lines somehow. We removed a relay while the car was running and let it use all the gas that was still in the lines. I believe it's one to the right of the radiator.
Disconnect battery, remove truck carpets and rear wall carpet/styrofoam pieces.
Remove black plastic fuel sender guard.
Remove and disconnect all plugs/lines where applicable. Be very careful here, some of these tubes are hardened plastic and can/will crack. Ensure all lines are free from sending unit.
Jack up rear of car. Unbolt the clamp holding the fuel filler neck to rear fender wall.
Get under car. Remove rear sway bar.
Unbolt e-brake line from rubber mount to frame, so you can move it out of the way.
Remove all the bolts that bolt into the gas tank. Remove all bolts 75% of the way before completely removing them so the tank drops evenly.
That should be it to remove the tank. While you're there, you may want to replace the fuel hoses inside the tank with the proper submersible hoses. Will save you quite the hassle later on.
For those of you who are experts, feel free to correct any of my errors!
Not very likely, you need to drop sub frame to get tank down and out or at least loosen 4 sub frame mounting bolts to get some clearance.Hi,
many thanks for this ChiapC.
Great if can get it out without removing rear subframe.
Will give it a go, cheers
