Dropping fuel tank (D90 NAS)

Hello all

Does anyone know if it is possible/safe to drop the fuel tank (by removing the sway bar, and other bolts on the skid plate) WITHOUT removing fuel lines or depressurizing the system?

I need to replace a cracked return hose.

Thanks

thanks for the response Ron. What i'm wondering is if I can just unbolt the sway bar and plates and lower the tank down? Or, do i have to depressurize the fuel system and disconnect the lines first?

No pressure.... you will disconnect the fill hose ,overflow hose , fuel pump plug then the fuel lines in and out.... it really is the best way to do the repair...

Make sure to spray PB blaster on all the bolts...

Try run the tank to empty first to keep it light, but there are no issues doing as you describe.
