Unhappy Put a hole in my gas tank....

I recently bought a 98 Impreza Wagon, to make a long story short some how I ended up with a huge gash in my gas tank I have already sourced a gas tank with the same part number as mine from a local salvage yard.

I was wondering how difficult it will be to remove the old tank and put in the new one, as I will be doing the swap in a driveway in Michigan.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks Bill

Swapping a tank is no fun at all. The rear driveline has to come out since the tank sits above it. I tried removing as little as possible until the tank could come out, but ended up with the diff off, rear subframe unbolted and supported by a jack, and the struts separated from the hubs.

Plan a weekend with good weather and 4 large jackstands.

good luck with that, replacing a tank on your back is definitely no Fun, especially the tank in one of these cars, only car i think is worse is a 98-02 Accord
