Default Re: L100 fuel tank leak

without a service manual at hand and past experiences with other types of tanks, there should be two metal straps that wrap around the tank. one end should be hinged and the other should either have a nut/bolt. best way to do it is on a near empty tank. this requires a lift or the car being high on jack stands. the tank has to be properly supported and lowered slowly to the point that you can access the lines on top. carefully disconnect the clips on the lines and the electrical connection plugs. finish by lowering the tank all the way. you will see the top of the tank where there you can further determine the leak. also check all of the lines for a possible vibration wear down and the fittings for cracks. other than that, I don't have a book to follow, only past experience.
