(1) Raise and support the car on it's chassis.. (Be safe) support the rear end from under the pumpkin (center) with your jack...
(2) Remove inner driver side rear fender well..
(3) Remove the single (1) 10mm bolt and pull down on the filler neck..
(4) Remove exhaust hangers.. Let the "over" axle pipe rest on the axle...
(5) Remove BOTH panhard bar bolts.. The upper one on the passenger side may need BFH persuation..lol
(6) Slightly lower the axle on the jack so you can get the top panhard bolt clear of the spring ..
(7) Remove panhard and set aside..
(8) RE-raise the axle (BUT NO NOT RAISE THE WHOLE CAR).. Just raise the axle slightly..
(9) Remove the lower shock mount bolts..
(10) Remove fuel tank strap bolts there will be 2 bolts close to the axle up in the "hump".. (look up in there)..
(11) Swing down and out then remove the straps (by unclipping the ends)..
(12) Let the fuel tank rest on the axle..
(13) Carefully "SLOWLY" lower the axle untill the drivers side wire harness is "just visable".. reach in and remove the (2) piece harness plug from it's mount..
(14) Disconnect the "quick" disconnect fuel line, return line, and breather line/s....
(15) Continue to lower the axle keeping an eye and a hand on the tank so it does'nt fall..
(17) Reach in on either side of the fuel tank (plastic) firmly grasping it's sides and then slowly slide the tank down and out....
(18) Pour the contents into a gas can or 5 gallon bucket..
(19) IF BUCKET METHOD is used, I would NOT recommend you leave it sit in the bucket longer than the time it takes to locate a funnel to pour it into an fuel safe can with a closeable lid....
Always helps to have an extra pair of eyes and hands too.. Above is as "if" you're doing the job solo.. Good luck!!
