1995 Fuel Gauge Installation

Hey guys,
Just bought an old Bayou for my son's Christmas this year. Pretty good shape but one of the things I need to replace is the fuel gauge.
I have ordered a new one, but cannot find much information on how to remove and replace.
Does the retaining ring just pop in and out? Does it screw out? Do I need some kind of special tool? It was dark and cold in the storage unit where I have it hidden, so until this weekend I cannot really get at it; any help would be welcome.
Here is the new one I ordered. Looks simple, I just do not want to mess it up and ruin something.

Just pop it out, the do need to go back in inline, but easy enough. (The tab things need to line up)

Great. Thanks Mark. When you say "inline", and "tab things" are you talking about the silver ring or on the gauge itself ... or both.

I am going to try and get out there tomorrow during while the sun is still out and see if I can get it out.

It will make sense when you pop it out. It all goes in line so it looks right on the tank. The little indent/ flat spot on the silver trim needs to be at the top, this then lines up with the gauge underneath. It really is easy, if I can do it then it must be :-)

Thanks again. I will give it a go and see what happens.
The little indent is about the only place I can get a little screwdriver right now, so I was going to use it as my pry spot to try and get it to pop up.

Will let you know what happens.

Yeah. That's what I did, you get a new one but you should be able to get it off undamaged :-). Then that spot helps line it all back up

Piece of cake. Pulled off the silver ring with a screw driver, (this holds the gauge in place) lifted the old one out and dropped the new one in. New one came with its own new silver ring so I didn't have to worry about tearing the old one up.
Only thing I would say is to be careful with the rubber around the hole. Almost stabbed it with my screw driver while wrestling with the silver ring.
Literally took 5 minutes start to finish.
