    2002 freedom fuel tank leak

    I'm the newest owner of an 02 Polaris Freedom, very happy with the ski but it seems to have a small gas leak in the hull. I think it's from the tank, has anyone ever replaced the tank in this model? If so do I have to pull the motor to go through the rear or is ther enough room through the front storage compartment to come through. Any answers will help thanks.

    Welcome to the Hulk!

    Call a Polaris dealer and ask them to check your HIN number for outstanding Service Bulletins. Also ask what service history the system shows for your HIN.

    I seem to think there was a safety recall or Service Bulletin regarding defective fuel tanks, but not sure which model year(s) that applied to. You MAY be eligible to get that tank fixed or replaced.

    If you need to do it yourself, that gas tank is fairly big, so I don't know whether it would fit through the front opening. I have never removed one myself.

    You might ask the guys on here that part out skis, whether the Freedom or Virage (same hull) gas tank will come out the front. The same guys might have a good used tank you can buy.

    Tank comes out the front compartment .Probably find someone dropped a screw or something down the side of the tank .The foam underlay might be worn through also .

    Tank out the front sounds great, will I have to replace the foam as well?
