[DML] Re: Trunk Weight Capacity and Fuel Tank

I don't know that there is an actual "weight limit" on the trunk. I
would suspect that 220 is either near or over the limit though. I am
170 and I hear everthing creak. It can be done without getting into
the trunk. Use a milkbox or something similar to stand on and reach
over the right side fender. Use a fender cover or a towel. Don't try
getting all the gas out of the acccumulator. You don't have to empty
the tank to replace the accumulator either unless you want to clean
the tank out which is a good idea anyway. Use safety goggles and keep
a pan under the accumulator as you remove it. You can also wrap a rag
around it to help contain any spilt fuel. Work in a well ventilated
area. Remove the fuel pump and siphon directly out of the tank. Be
VERY CAREFUL not to bend the "hard" lines at the accumulator. It is a
big deal to replace them if you twist them up.
