Petrol tank straps

Anyone changed the tank straps on an omega suspension Panda Classic. Tank straps have rotted can't get at front strap bolt, it looks like I need to drop the whole Omega suspension front mount! Bright ideas gratefully accepted.
Cheers

Re: Petrol tank straps

It can be done with the rear axle in place. I jacked the back of the car on axle stands and used a ?13mm swan neck ring spanner. If you have already removed the other bolts you may end up with the tank falling on you

Left min on the Donor 750L, Couldn't be bothered to go through all the hassle to remove it in the end.
