This french website has thousands of photos of the Peugeot 205 T16, mixed in with all the Group B cars are pics of the Dakar cars. There are a lot of old magazine and technical articles in that thread.

The fuel tank was moved from it's forward location in front of the car, to the area where they added the extention between the passenger and engine compartment. It sat right behind the drivers. They raised the firewall when they moved the fuel cell. The first photo is from the 1988 Dakar vehicle. The second photo shows the height of the firewall in the car's Group B configuration.
