Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

My 1999 9-5 (R.I.P.) developed same cracked mount for leak pressure test (ironic failure) and this was the source of my fumes as well as the lousy ill fitting round access cover under the rear seat. Best to fix the cracked mount for good by dropping the tank and heat welding in some stainless steel mesh and HDPE filler plastic. Some have had success with trying to seal this defect with specialty aircraft epoxy working throug the access cover without removing the tank. Almost nothing sticks to this plastic, so my best advice is drop the tank and get full access to the crack. You can buy a heat welding kit for ATV fender repairs or a lower temp soldering iron can work. Key is to melt into the crack to get a deeper weld and the stainless steel mesh well embedded. Then add more HDPE melted over it. Might look like crap, but it will do the job and it's hidden from site Best of Luck!
