6n2 1.4v Remove Fuel Tank

Post by sixandtwo » Mon Jan 13, 2020 9:57 pm

I drained part of the fuel tank and I noticed it has kinda dirty stuff in it (like old gas or something) and I want to clean it, so I need to remove it. I have no idea on how to remove it. Help

It's a while since I did this, but can you get sufficient out by disconnecting the fuel filter ???

I've not done this either, but do be careful with fire hazard (fuel vapours). On my 9n there is a strap and mounting bolts below, then the filler (behind the wheel liner) has some connections to the emissions equipment. I'm not sure you can remove the tank on the 9n without dropping the rear cross-member. Fuel lines are under the rear seats (with a special type of quick release connector).
