1996 GT Leaky gas tank?

the gromet that seals the tank at the filler tube is leaking. I got the part now I have to put it in. Can any one show me a diagram on how to install this part?

You don't have to drop the tank completely. Just loosen the straps on teh tank and support it with a floor jack. Remove the filler neck and you will be able to install the new gasket. I don't have a diagram to show you but it's pretty straight forward.

FYI get as much gas out of the tank as you can, dont do it on a full or even half full tank, the less gas the better
