    Can anyone tell me if it's possible to take the tank out without dismantling all the car?

    And if so, how?

    Thx

    My mk2 pilgrim had an incorrect length pick up pipeā€¦ it only picked up fuel if the tank was 1/3 full.

    Took us ages to work that one out!

    I put a fuel pick up at the bottom edge of my tank and fitted an electric pump with a tachymetric relay - works great - I used one of the lines on the top of the tank as a return line and blanked the other off.

    Hi,
    Yes, taken my tank out a few times. Jack the back of the car up and supported on axel stands. Removed the filler cap/fitting as it's then easier to disconnect the filler hose. Disconnected the fuel pickup pipes. Then with the aid of an assistant, used a ring spanner to hold the top of the bolts which bolt it to the body, whilst I was underneath undoing the nuts. The tank will then come out with a bit of wiggling. Top tip, syphon out all the fuel first as its' quite heavy with some of it left in and makes it awkward to manoeuvre it.
    Hope this helps.
    Regards, Don.
