When i look under the back of my 2002 jeep liberty sport..it looks as if the gas tank straps are not secure..when i wiggle them they feel loose and cannot tell where they are supposed to be secured, or what they look like when they are secured properly. Other gas tanks i have seen the straps wrap tightly around the whole tank..but in this case the straps are in a "V" shape underneath the tank.

Re: gas tank is loose
On one end of each strap there should be a bolt. It's possible that there was an "insulator" between the strap and tank that deteriorated and fell out. It's not essential that it be replaced but likely you can tighten those bolts to take up some of the slack. Don't crank down too tight or you may distort tank.

Pretty simple process, if you have a tow hitch it will have to be removed first. Once that is done you will need to disconnect fuel lines and electrical connections. Evap hoses and fill hose and remove straps from tank. Place floor jack under tank prior to releasing straps and then lower slowly to ensure you didn't leave anything connected
I believe the fuel filter is under the vehicle and over the fuel tank. You'll have to drop the tank to access the filter. Loosen the nut on both ends of the filter and gently seperate. Replace new filter and retighten the nuts. Secure the tank back.
Put a jack (for a flat tire) under the fuel tank, so you could control how far it dropped. Then remove the two screws that hold the fuel tank straps. The screws come out, the fuel tank is loose, lower the tank by lowering the jack. Now it is easy to reach the filter. One screw holds it in place. Unscrew it, it comes right out. The tricky part is figuring out how to unplug the fuel lines. Look at the replacement filter, note how the plastic piece inside each fuel line has to be squeezed to remove it. You need to squeeze the old ones the same way to release them. It isn't easy. Squeeze the plastic piece that is holding the hose in place until you can work it out. A few drops of gas will dribble out. The gas is NOT pressurized. Unsnap the old hoses, snap in the new ones (much easier). Screw the new filter into place. Jack the fuel tank back into place. Screw the straps back on. Clip the ground strap in place where the old one was. You're done.
three 10mm nuts hold mirror on under bezel small set screw bottom of bezel along with a philleps screw can sometimes wiggle bezelupwards and you can remove without removeing door pad.if pad must be removed loosen screws by door handle arm rest look for plugs with small screwdriver remove plugs and screws tap pad upwards with hand reverse procdure to complete.
I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch.
Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat.
