From side. The fluid container slots in place in metal bracket. I cannot see if bracket is bolt or screw mounted to rear panel

The reservoir retaining bracket is welded to the rear valence panel reinforcement.
One of the holes in the bracket is used for alignment (to a hole in the panel)
Some petrol vans use a single TD engine bar mounting plate (the D shaped one with three holes) as a platform for the bracket, some others don't. I got this info from a friend on the samba forum so it may be a US detail?
