Easiest way to take the fuel filler pipe out?


Recommended Posts

So my dad gave me a very old fuel siphon thing, one side was short but strong and flat plastic, the other side was concertina stuff but a fair bit longer. i tried to siphon out some fuel to run the mower and the short side didnt reach the fuel tank so i decided (stupidly) to use the other, bendy crappy concertina side to get further down the filler neck. well, it broke off and has been sititng somewhere either in the filler neck or in the fuel tank for about 6 months, and i had a quick look at removing it on the weekend but couldnt see how to get to it from the boot, so im guessing i have to remove panels and/or go under the car?

Wow, sounds like you're in a pickle.

what model is this vehicle?

i would drop the fuel tank out. This gives you access to the tank and the filler neck/hose.

make sure there is as little fuel as possible  in it though, you don't want a 80kg+ fuel tank squishing you or splashing furl everywhere.

I'm sorry I don't know the exact procedure, but it would be along the lines of disconnect anything attached to it, you may need to pull the rear seat out, then drop it out.
