Remove the interior trunk liners, the tank is located behind the back particle board, behind where your spare is mounted and battery. Take all of that out. There are two black tank straps that hold the tank in position. Remove bolts to lossen. Take care around where the filler neck attaches to the body (left rear next to trunk). You will have to disconnect serveral harnesses also to "work" it back and forth and ultimately slide it out. As a former master jaguar tech, I will say this; if you are not trained, I suggest you let a professional do this job for you. Gas tanks are no joke.

Whatever you decide, good luck.

Note if you remove the fuel tank sending units, be sure to use a brass punch while loosing the rings. If you don't, the tank can explode or at least catch fire.

Fuel filter location?


most are in the gas tank.

Easy job if you have a floor jack, 2 floor stands and wrench.
Empty the gas tank, place jack centered on the gas tank jack up the car, put the floor stands in place to hold the car steady, disconnect the wiring go to the gas tank then remove the bolts (most cars only have 2 holding the tank braces, slowly lower the floor jack with the tank on it, remove the fuel pump slowly and carefully as not to have anything fall in the tank.

If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.
