according to my brief research foray... one bolt near the filler cap,
one nut at the very rear, and a rubber bushing holding the bottom in
place.  How hard is that to remove?  probably "very".  As in, remove
many other things first.

prolly easier to remove the fender and replace the leaking headlight
washer tank.  I don't think they go bad often.

And that headlight sprayer system uses a *lot* of fluid, it's nice ot
have separate tanks so the w/s washer doesn't run dry prematurely.
