I NEED TO REPLACE THE RIGHT GAS TANK STRAP ON A . I WAS WONDERING HOW TO LOOSEN THE LEFT STRAP TO ALLOW ME TO TO LOWER THE GAS TANK.

2002 Mercury Cougar • 100,000 miles

I was able to remove the bolt holding the damaged right strap in place. I was wondering how I can lower the gas tank to allow me to replace the strap. A heat shield for the exhaust appears to be in the way of the bolt for the other strap.
