Default Replacing fuel tank

Hello everybody,

I was wondering if anyone could explain me how to replace my fuel tank?
Car spec's: Suzuki Samurai '93 1300cc

Are there any hoses or seals that also need to be replaced when doing this?

Thank you very much for your help!

Best regards.

The 93 will have the high pressure pump in the tank, so make sure you get the late model tank if you are ordering a replacement. It's alot easier if you have a friend help, or it could get messy.
Don't start with a full tank, the less gas the easier it will be.
-Support the tank using a floor jack.
-Look up on the passenger side and get to know the hoses involved, loosen, disconnect what you can reach.
-Remove the four bolts that hold the skidplate/tank to the frame.
-Slowly lower the tank and disconnect the final hoses/sensor/pump wires (label as you go)
-Compare the tank to the new one, move over what you need.
-Assemble in reverse.
