She's down for the count. Any tips for getting the coolant reservoir out?

Going on a two week KO for the Boxster.

First the fan was out and we're waiting for the sensor to come in. Then I rigged the fan so I can have it on all the time in order to be able to drive the car and it works great. Only problem is when it heated up a little when the fan went out it sprang a leak. It took me all weekend to find it in the base of the tank. Now the tank has to come out and it'll be down for another week.

My wife isn't too happy with having to drive the Intrepid to work so hopefully I can get this done this week. Anybody have any good tips to make getting the coolant reservoir out an easier/faster job?

I must. The two female dogs and the Dodge Intrepid weren't mentioned. Dodge, now THAT'S high maintenance!

Talking

Ya gotta love Chrysler products. We used to refer to them as the Disposable Razors of the car industry.
