put some wood block between the floor pan and the front panel 2 or 3 inch of rise up , it will slip right in , watch out for the foam strip on top of the tank.....

I got it guys, thanks for the input. Ive also figured out that I didnt have remove the whole damn skid plate to do this job, didnt realize that I couldve pulled the tank out the side. Oh well!

I'm not sure how or why it snapped it just snapped, in the back right in front of where its swedged onto the threaded rod.

Thanks

Its an '06 with about 11K miles. I dont think it'll be anything that you can really know is going out until it goes out since the cable runs through that housing.

Thanks. I know I have a pivot, just didn't know if there was still a cable somewhere in there.
