[200q20v] Squeaky leather

When I took mine out as part of redoing the HP hose to the rack, I found 
that removing the nut holding the arm of the bracket that goes to the part 
of the firewall that bends toward the driver position, I then could undo 
the other nut and take the reservoir and bracket out together.  Just taking 
out the tank wouldn't give you as much room as you need to get to the banjo 
bolt (unless your arms are 2" in diameter).  I also had to take out the 
bracket for the fuel lines and move them somewhat to get at the rack.  Be 
sure to clean the area around the rack attachment point (I sprayed with 
WD40 a couple times and blew the crap out with an airgun) before removing 
the bolt.
