Wiper Fluid Reservoir Removal?

Hi Guys.

The latest discovery is that my washer fluid reservoir has a crack and leak on one of the bottom corners.  I can probably fix it, but not sure how to remove the tank.  Clearly the plastic is old and I don't want to destroy it in the process if i can help it.  I dont see any obvious way it is held down so maybe it just pops in and out of some pressure mount holes, but i dont want to pull until i know for sure there isnt anything else holding it down or some underbody pin or clamp I have to undo that I don't see.

Any advice?  And also, if it proves to be unworthy of repair, recommendations on replacement tank vendors?  thanks in advance.

UNRELATED UPDATE:  The Quadrajet now idles and the car legit drives without stalling!  Woot!

IIRC there are threaded studs on the bottom of the reservoir that are accessed from under the dash.

Thanks!  are there 2 of them?  I can sort of see one so far.  I'll dig further!

UPDATE: several contortions later, got it out.  really hard to reach that second bolt above the steering column!

Not sure if a repair is possible, since HDPE is so notoriously difficult to bond.  But I might give it a go before buying a replacement tank.
