Default 96 txt. replace gas tank how to get off?

I need to replace 96 txt ezgo gas tank.

Getting the 2 top bolts off was difficult, but I did that.
Now I can't figure out how to get the old one out. It won't move
but a little bit and appears to be "locked" in by the frame bars.

How do I get it out?

Or. how can I plug a nickel size hole in the top of the old one. ?

{Please help

I think the tank kind of wedges in there... Is the hole a factory one or one that was knocked in it ?

not factory.. About size of nickel... not sure how it got there, but it is a the top corner. I did some work on it and must have did it somehow.

I tried pulling and yanking.. not really hard, but then looked and I can't really see how it would come out.. no matter how hard I yank. afraid will break something else..

Hopefully, I'm just not seeing something...

I think mine only had the two at the top but.. Can you see from the bottom ? You could try a bolt and a couple of flange and rubber washers

Do you mean the hole not supposed to be there.? it is on the top corner.. angled.. kind of oblong..

not sure what you meant by bolt and flange. and seeing from the bottom...

If you meant getting the old one out.. I have the two top bolts off...
don't think there is another one..
it seems to be wedged between the support bar.

With my workhorse, the tank will spin after those bolts are free but there is a bunch more room.. As for the bolt, you could take a bolt with a big flange washer with a rubber ring and fish it up through the hole in the tank. Put another rubber ring and washer on the outside with a nut to make like a sandwich. Put another nut on top and lock those two together..

Thanks.. that is good idea. I will try to that... if no one can help with getting the tank off.
I bought a new tank for over $100.. not sure they will take it back now.
So hoping I can figure out the right way..

but great idea on trying to fill the hole.. I'll keep my eye out for some rubber flanges.

The tank should come out but you may have to pull the rear body to do it..
