It's quite easy to do.

Check this out for the electrics.

They also have videos to show you how to install a tow bar too.

When I've replaced tank straps, I used the same technique as Steve described.

No, had no luck at all with a manual... it’s the GH Diesel engine and the manuals seem rarer than rocking horse manure!
Bit of trial and error getting it off but managed it.
Now just need to try it out, but I’m not hopeful that it has cured the problem

Never done one on a Mazda, but have on others

Drain tank, or run till nearly empty, The tank wont weigh much, Use a jack or 2 to hold tank in place and try to do 1 strap at a time. As you will be replacing the straps you could cut the old ones off to make it easier, Put something between jack and tank to spread the load.

It's a rusting problem. Just had the MOT done and they raised the issue.

I honestly doubt if anyone on the forum has had any reason to cope with or had any experience of this situation. I've never heard of this happening before.  But you never know :) 
Is it a rust situation or has there been some damage sustained ?

On a safety point personally I would not undertake this type of work using a jack and axle stands. Although they might be adequate for a quick look and small job under the car, I wouldn't feel safe carrying out a major repair with the car suspended in such a fashion.

I've an advisory on the fuel tank straps on my Mazda 6 estate (diesel).

How easy is it to replace these and can it be done using jack and axle stands.

I've had a few quotes back for places ranging in price from £300 to £422.

Ok.  Think I'll leave it.  I'll just paint them.  Saw them online and it seems like a quick fix, but think painting them would be the better option. 

Cheers All.
