Filler neck is rusted out under the rubber cup at the fender.
I need some help as to how to remove the filler neck after all fasteners are removed. I don't think I can pull the neck out of the opening for the fuel door because the vent tube looks as though it won't fit through.
Do I push the filler tube into the tank and then maneauver it around and pull it out the wheel well.
I hope I don't have to drop the tank.
It's on a '96
Just make sure the tube is really, really clean and smooth just outside the tank before you slide it in the little it needs. There's a rubber seal mounted on the tank that you don't want to gouge up, unless you plan on replacing it (a worthy investment, considering the age). And twisting helps a lot to get the flange oriented.
