It is possible, but you must be careful with any possible source of fuel vapor ignition, on this vehicle the tank will have to be almost completely drained of fuel.

I find it easier to completely remove a tank rather than fight it in some awkward position. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS MAKE SURE TO COMPLETELY DRAIN THE TANK. I put a tarp on the floor when I drop a tank so there is no chance of a spark if it hits the floor. Once down, it is an easy replacment.
