  1. Beware of the tiny round valve inside the fuel bolt when you take it off. Mine came out and dropped inside the engine and I got lucky using a magnet to fish it out. I used the one screw method in order to have the car running so I would save on a flatbed tow ,but then found out it was as good as 2 screws.
  2. It looks like my 2002. I would unscrew the fuel bolt to give more room. Very little fuel will come out that you could catch with a rag. Any way if you can't figure how to do with 2 screws, then go with the one left screw as I did. Take the support off the body pannel and slided half way in on the tank with a help of a friend and position the left screw align with hole with a flash light and 10mm long extenstion tool, once you got it tight , then slide the tank all the way in and connect all the hoses and other stuff. The left engine mount is easy as long as you have 2 jacks , one to lift t
  3. Install the black support bracket on the tank and have a friend hold the tank half way in the support so you have enough room to do the left outer screw using a flash light, then slide the tank all the way in. You don't need two screws. My tank is holding by one screw and has been working fine with no movement or tilt and still level.

I have no Idea how Porsche does it with 2 screws on the support but $800 for labor, I went with for the one screw suppor
  4. I just replaced the coolant tank on a 2002 996 C2 which has no fuel lines connected like the 1999 DIY photo, only has one fuel bolt, However I did remove left rear motor mount and placed a jack under the engine ( the rectangle part) to support and drop the engine to give me more room about 2". Once I disconnected the hoses and and got the, sensors and air pump out of the way, I pulled the tank out and broke the tank support( black plastic thing on top that the tank that slides in) Got a used support from a junkyard in LA for $15 including shipping new cost $28. Took me about 2 hous to get
