How to remove the filler neck? Hoses are already off
My car has an automatic transmission.
The filler neck for the fuel tank is bolted to the body, near the bottom of the filler neck assembly. To access the bolt, you will have to remove a plastic access panel. The filler neck is retained, as well, at the top, where the cap is, typically by a removable rubber bezel or plate. YourMechanic commonly replaces the fuel tank fuel filler neck on a mobile basis. Therefore, if you like, YourMechanic can dispatch a certified professional to remove and replace this part for you. Inasmuch as your vehicle is 15 years old, you'll want to consider replacing any rubber hose connections that you had to remove to replace the neck. With so much age on rubber parts, they often will not make a reliable leak proof seal on re-use and obviously with something as flammable as fuel, you don't want to have even a "minor" leak.
