Question about Seat Cars & Trucks
Can pull tank forward like it is loose. Have had a lot of problems with float and inside tank running. It is possible that the tank can break loose.
Those tanks are usually held on to the bottom by 2 bolts with rubber gaskets in between. Its possible the bolts have come loose or was not installed tight enough when installed. The rubber gaskets could be rotten as well depending on its age. You should be able to buy the parts you need at a hardware store.You can also buy the float as well as all the parts to replace all the working parts. I would start from scratch unless its cheaper to just replace the whole unit. I would get prices to compare. If you are handy at all you can do it yourself but if not call a plumber.

First disconnect the negative terminal of the battery. Next left out the back seat. It is spring clipped in with two clips on the bottom left and right front of the seat. Pull clips forward and lift seat front up. I hooks in at the back so rotate the front up to unhook and lift out. In the middle under the seat is the gas gage float. Disconnect the wire connector and remove floor cover with Philips screwdriver. Then remove float from tank. This step must be done so you do not break the wire to the gas gage float. It is also the best place to siphon off the gas in the tank. Then you can remove the tank. You may have an exhaust shield to remove. The tank is held in with two straps hinged in the front and bolted in the back. Loosen the brake line clamps attached to the straps so that the clamp will slip when the tank straps are hinged down. There are several hoses and a gas connect to open. Open hose clamps. Disconnect fuel pump connector at back of tank. The fill hose needs to be worked off as you pull the tank down. There is one hose on the top back edge of the tank that needs disconnect after the tank is tipped down some. There is a rubber/plastic tank holder connected to the back flange of the gas tank. Remove the two corner screws but leave the guard connected to the straps. Remove the two strap bolts and hinge down to pull it out and disconnect all hoses. Mark with tape or some mean which hose when were.
