Q: Need help dropping polyethylene gas tank.

asked by on

I was in the process of dropping the polyethylene gas tank. Their are two push connectors at the top of the tank that I cannot figure out how to disconnect.

Hello, you will need to use a tool like a scribe tool or a screwdriver to push in the tab to release the connectors. A technician from YourMechanic can assist you with getting that disconnected.
