      Alright everyone, this photo explains a lot, not the previous owners fault but still...



      Sadly, the shop (Tire Kingdom) << because seriously **** you guys, who replaced the shift cables did not properly install the exhaust or any of the heat shielding correctly. By not installing the exhaust properly it caused the exhaust to rub against the heat shielding, rub through to the tank, and pierce it you ****ty ****ing pretend mechanic.

      Needless to say Tire Kingdom will be hearing from not only me but also the previous owner on this, this could have started a fire. Needless to say a new fuel tank $35 from salvage, and heat shields $20, the car will be good as new. Here are the photos.



      It's hard to tell but below you can see where they had blatant disregard for the heat shielding.



      How lazy can you ****ing be?



      Oh those shift cables bro? They will be alright rubbing on the sharp heat shield and resting on the oxygen sensor (now I know why there is that fault code).



      Anyways, that's all for now, these things should be repaired soon for the curious the fuel tank removal process is detailed below (semi accurate).

      - Disconnect fuel pump and lines (access hole)
      - Remove RR fender liner
      - Remove EVAP components (charcoal canister / purge valve)
      - Remove Fuel door and screws behind cover that secure filler neck
      - Loosen/Remove rear beam pivot mounts (Secure the beam so it doesn't kill you)
      - Secure fuel tank with Jack
      - Loosen straps to fuel tank (remove useless plastic cover)
      - Lower tank and replace

      This should be the order, this isn't listed anywhere in the Bentley manual from what I could find online, I should have the book tonight to take a look. Anyways, questions comments concerns? I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel as well as I plan on videoing the repairs to help some people out. TTY bafoons soon.

      PS: Big photos are big.

      WTF over? Definitely looks like they didn't even try or care, if they push back I'd take them to a small claims court.

      Oh yeah, already in the process this is a big safety issue that could shut that store down.

      UPDATE!

      Tank was ordered from a local salvage yard for $35 Yeah!!! It comes from a 2001 Jetta with <60K miles .

      So I have some good news for the community because this thread is about helping the fellow dubber I just received this



      I will be uploading diagrams to help people follow along with what I'm doing. No I will not upload everything because if you are smart you know where to find it. Also my Shift Rod bushings have been delivered along with new vacuum pump and end caps woo! So plan on seeing that completed soon with pictures and hopefully video. More to come...

      This wouldn't surprise me haha. The good news is I have the new heat shields and tank to pick up tomorrow. She should hopefully be up and running next weekend maybe.

      Actually, the previous owner couldn't keep up with payments after having an issue with the shift cables and I offered to take the car back, So I received about $3000 for leasing the car the past year and a half. Good to see you too George!

      So, this may be out of the range of questions here. But do did you personally lease the car or do you work at a buy here pay here or something? Just curious as to how the situation with leasing a MKIV and falling behind on payments happened.
