Please excuse my technicality as I'm not a mechanic nor have much experience but I have someone shown me this today so I thought I would like to share with everyone.
So I did what AseMaster recommended by unplug the pink plug( see pics) and turned on the ignition. Sure enough the gas gauge went all the way down to empty. Next I remove the 2 plugs and the 2 fuel hoses(under the driver side rear seat) and remove the whole assembly. From the attached picture you will see the floater is actually connected to a metal rod which also connects with the metal sensor. Make sure the 2 metals are making contact or simply use fine sand paper to create a contact surface for both. After that, put everything back to its original place and plug everything back. Turn ignition on and you will get your meter back to normal. Good luck.
