Not really. They are easy to break. If you have a hook pick, it will allow you to help push the backside of the clip in if it is really stuck but I just used wd40 and a small screwdriver to ease them out. Remember to Push in on the hose to keep the clip from binding.

This is fantastic advice. If you're really lucky, said friend will have a vehicle hoist you can use... and a transmission jack. (It sure made my job a lot easier.) Also: the less fuel in the tank, the easier the job will be.

Oh, while you're at it, upgrade to a stronger gas tank skid plate.

KrzyMoke Be careful removing the connections. Be sure to push the hose in before you try to pull out the clips. That will keep them from breaking. I recently pulled my tank and broke a hard to find clip. Now I have to do some runs to yards to find it. Slow and steady will get it done. Get help from a friend.

distortedtj Basic quick rundown...

disco battery
remove screw from filler hose.
remove ground strap
loosen the skid plate nuts (4 at rear/ 3 on axle side)
Place jack under skidplate to lower it.
remove the 7 nuts holding the skid plate on
slowly lower the tank.
Once you have it down about 3 to 4 inches you will need to reach up and unplug the connectors from the tank
Once you have them disco'd from the tank......
drop it down and pull it out.

reverse for install.
