I am having trouble removing my petrol tank on my 1993 XJ6 Jag, I have removed the 2 sraps and removed the rubber trim from the top of the filler neck but still cant seem to pull the tank out, it is as if there is somthing still holding it in the middle of the tank underneath.
Just wondering if there is any other mounting bolts or another pipe underneath the tank?
The 93 xj6 tank is in the trunk behind the spare tire and battery, While there are two straps holding it, they will not be rusty because they are inside the trunk. After disconnecting everything in the trunk, jack up the car (use jack stands) crawl under and disconnect the two clips holding the fuel lines to the tank. There are two holes in the trunk under the tank that let the lines through.
Now the tank will pull right out.

Remove as much fuel from tank using a syphon or plastic pump.
Remove tank from car, Tip it upside down to drain remaining fuel.
DO NOT WELD the tank if it is leaking or the remaining fuel fumes will explode.
Well my 94' came loose as per the book. The book takes apart a earlier model car so procedures are different, sometimes. Try using spare tires from your Jag and your wife's then something else very safe.I had a 60' T-Bird lite on my hand in 1990 and belive me...it hurts. Just use sturdy things that won't move if the car does slip. Don't EVER rely on the jack EVER! Let the weight down on the wheels. Just thinkin....Go buy some jacks.
I had a similar problem with a 92 when I replaced the float/level sensor in the tank. Did you recently change the pump or sensor? Check the tightness of anything you may have loosened or opened. There is also a line that usually drains water from the depression in which the filler cap sits. If you have a bad cap and even a minor overflow or spill from a fill-up, gas could leak into the trunk and once absorbed into the carpeting it is very difficult to remove the smell from the matting. I power washed mine with solvents and water based detergents, three times and let them air dry each time, finally placing an odor absorbing chemical in the trunk to solve the problem. Good luck hope this helps.
You pretty much have to start at the ashtray and work forward making note of what you are taking out as you go. Remove the knobs of course, retaining screws that would be in place as keepers as well. As you get ready to remove the ski slope, there will be keeper screws in place with plastic loops that will break if you are not careful and 2 plastic wingnuts roughly where the ashtray meets the ski slope but underneath and out of sight unless you are looking for them. Once the ski slope is out of the way, its pretty straightforward but there are a lot of wires with terminals that are unique to the radio and jags......you can probably splice things if you need to.....but there are a lot of splices to do and then fitting things back will get more cramped and difficult.
There are 2 lines coming from the back bottom of the tank. They are metal shielded lines and don't give much. They are up behind the differential. The lines are held on by two clips. You don't have to remove them, just turn. It takes a little strength to get the lines off but they will break loose. They are just push lines. Once you get them off, the tank will come right out. I just did it a week ago.
If the tank has much over a gallon (5L) then you would be best to drain the remainder of the fuel, otherwise you should be able to change the lines without looseing much fuel.
The obvious thing to note, is you are working on a fuel system, and the risk of produceing a fire is very high, even with the tank empty!
i have a 92 xj6 i just replaced the fuel pump should be the same for yours remove spare tire in trunk there are two straps two bolts take bolts out jack car up there are locate your fuel filter mine was under the rear door drivers side follow the hoses and they will lead you to the two hoses connecting the gas tank there are two pins to remove one on each hose do not loose those trust me they will be hard to find and be aware there is very little space to work in after removing tank the rest is easy remove the pump located in the tank and do everything in reverse also dont forget to replace the screen to clean all the rust out of the tank there is a bolt in the bottom of the tank to let all the debris out good luck
93 Jaguar XJ6, sadly the pump is located in the gas tank and the tank has to be removed from the trunk to gain access
Pretty basic replacement except above the rear axle underneath the car are where the fuel lines are connected, they are quick connects and are help in place with a spring pin, do not remove the spring pins, you just turn the pins to one side and the hoses will pull off, but you will need a rack to do this, It is impossible to get to the hoses with the car on the ground.
The tank itself is self is pretty easy, just be careful when you remove the screws holding the fuel filler gater assy as you can tear the rubber and they are expensive to replace.
Hope this helps
