So I had to do an unplanned repair on my moms Intrepid.
Her Passenger Fuel Tank Strap rusted through, good thing I was outside when she went to drive away!
Armed with a Part Number and a wise ass attitude I went to the local 5Star rip off center, I mean dealer.
Parts needed: (probably best to replace both, but I only did the right side)
1: 4581 035 STRAP, Fuel Tank, Left
1: 4581 036 STRAP, Fuel Tank, Left
4: Hex Flange Head, M8-1.25x45 (had to get regular head and washers at lowes)
1: Can of PB-Blaster/Penetrating Oil
1: Tub of Grease
1: Socket Set (including Metric and SAE depending on the amount of rust)
2: Really long Socket extension
Jack the back of the car as HIGH up as you can, and properly support it with JackStand's (I prefer redundant support, I used 3 JackStand's and my Jack)
Step 2: Spray PB/Blaster on all 4 Strap bolts and let them sit for a good ole amount of time (the Intrepid's bolts were all crusty, 100K miles and for 5-7 months of the year its parked on a sand driveway near the ocean)
Step 3: Remove bolts carefully(you don't want to break it its tight under there and drilling them out would be hard) Service Manual says do passenger side first
Step 4: Remove the strap and Finesse the new strap back into position (I didn't remove the sway bar)
Step 5: Bolt up the strap, get the back like 2-3 turns in, and then move to the front (you may need to support the tank with a jack) and then tighten all the bolts
Step 6: Lower the car off the JackStand's
Step 7: Take a Shower, you will be a mess!
