removal of gas tank on 2002 Pontiac Sunfire

both straps have been removed all lines and hoses have been disconnected as per instruction, but gas tank won't come lose and drop to remove fuel pump

Did you remove the filler tube? sounds like you have everything covered. It just maybe hung on something in that area and needs to be moved one way or another to get it started down. Don't give up I think you are very close to getting this done.
