Just completed doing my rotor place a car jack stand or stack 2 blocks on each side of your A frame. Let jack down and place some blocks behind front of and rear of tires left on the ground. To remove your caliper mount look on reverse side of caliper mount for 2 large hex bolts. Lightly spray around them with some liquid wrench (try not to get spray everywhere). Remove bolts with a wrench and probably a hammer or a ratchet and a hammer. Tap lightly on wrench using short strokes. If this doesn't loosen the bolts use some heat (heated wrench technique) small propane kit to heat caliper mount not too hot just enough to heat it up to just above too hot to touch then reapply wrench tapping lightly. You need a C-Clamp to push the caliper in. After caliper is in remove c-clamp from caliper. If the caliper wont go in you have to replace it. Remove rotor cap with a flat head screw driver and hammer tapping around the edges lightly. Remove the pin out of the bolt behind the rotor cap. Remove nut then remove rotor. Some vehicles will not have a nut and pin system, just a shaft to hold the rotor in place. If the rotor is rusted on tap firmly on inside (back side) of
rotor to break it loose from the rust . Spray rust with liquid wrench let sit for 2 minutes then wipe dry. Use a clean cloth or rag to handle new rotor. Slide new rotor on the shaft and replace nut the pin (if no nut and pin continue to next step. Place caliper over rotor and screw in hex bolts on back side of caliper using a wrench or ratchet tighten 1/2 turn of being tight. Re -attach caliper mount onto caliper. Tighten 1/4 turn past tight. Lift truck with jack replace tire and remove jack stands and or blocks from under A frame let truck down and remove blocks

SOURCE: citroen xsara fuel gauge
Your most likely fault / problem, is with the fuel gauge sender unit being faulty - which is in the tank..
Its rare that gauges fail - but its worth checking... Access the fuel tank where the fuel pump fits in under the rear seats (i think) and remove the wire for the gauge, this is the smallest wire on the unit.
Earth that wire (ground), with the ignition on... make sure its a good earth - and the gauge should be seen to rise right to the top... if that happens - it proves the wiring and gauge are ok.. if not - then there is a problem with the wiring or gauge - most likely the latter which would need investigating.
Its usually the sender unit though as I say - 99.9 % of the time.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.
