GAS TANK REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT

1991 BMW 318

1991 BMW 318 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

How do I remove the tank. It looks like I have to remove the drive shaft? Looking for a diagram or video to help.

Fuel tank removal requires having the driveshaft out as well as exhaust, detach wiring and fuel supply and return lines from the top access ports, drain the tank to allow easy handling, and out it comes.
