Re: Petrol tank vibration !!


Take a look under the tank if its anything like a Mk1 Laguna there's two metal straps these straps are the only thing holding the tank in place.

I had to replace mine I can't remember now if I changed just the one or both, way back when it cost me 15 for the replacement and was an easy job to do.

Wait until the take is pretty near empty and support it with wood on top of a trolley jack. That way the jobs a goodun

BTW I also had my car Mot tested 4 weeks prior to finding out these straps looked like a shredded wheat
