Removal of the petrol tank

Hello, 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? Cheers, Richie

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.

Removing my tank on a 1994 XJ6 with in tank type pump, my Haynes tells me you have to remove the two fuel lines from under the car but i dont have axle stands, is there an other way to get at them?

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 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.

Smell of petrol inside the car

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.

1993 XJ6: how do you remove the 1993 jaguar xj6 radio?...

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 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.

1994 jag xjs bad fuel pump, the tank is behind the back seat, I've removed the plate behind the tank in the trunk and can't get the tank to budge, are there bolts that hold this in that I can't see?

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.

1993 jaguar xj6, do I need to drain fuel out before removing the fuel lines?

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!

1984 jag xj6 has no power

Hi Clyde

Expect you have it running by now, as I see this was posted 2 March ?

If not......

Charge up your battery, and heavy discharge test, suspect you have short in the plates.

If OK, jump start with a set of proper heavy duty jump leads.

Good Luck !

A FixYa would be nice...Thank´s......John.

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
