fuel tank filler neck seal advice.

Gotta replace the seal around the filler neck where it goes into the tank. Is there any other way than dropping the whole tank? Just curious if there might be a faster way? Its on a sn95 any help is always appreciated mustang evolution folks. Thanks again

Idk how much access you'd have if you did this, but pull back the side covering on the right side of the trunk and you'll see the filler neck itself.

I can answer this It is really simple you need to drop the tank about 3 inches. Take off the side covering from inside the trunk and unscrew the cover and the fuel filler line from quarter panel. Pull up on the filler tube but be careful not to break the end off in the tank. Then replace filler seal and put back together

It took me about an hour to do and it works great. No leaks buy it from ford it is a new design.

You have to pull back the hard lining along the side, I went in from my car, not the trunk.

I understand what u mean but I'm pretty sure there has always been a body panel in the way. It's been a while and I don't have a car to look at.

I did this recently to my 98. I don't know if the fueling setup differs but I didn't need to drop the tank at all. I pealed back the covering in the trunk off the side to get access to the hose from behind and removed the fuel door. Then I had to remove a few bolts on the hose that help secure it into the tank. After that I used lots of angles and leverage to push the hose out of the tank upwards to where the hose was sticking out of the side of the car. Then I just replaced the seal and repeated the process reversibly. It took about a half hour of laying under the trunk and leaning in the trunk.

I did this awhile back cause mine was leaking upon fill up. I dropped the tank, not fully though. I loosened the strap on the driver side and removed the strap on the passenger side. Then using a floor jack I lowered the tank till the filler tube could be wiggled out. Pulled the old seal and popped in the new one. I would caution you though, there is alot of dirt in that area if your tank has not been dropped, so before you remove anything clean so it doesn't contaminate today's expensive gas or ruin your pump. All in all it was not a horrible job but there is not a ton of room to work, and watch your electrical connections on top of the tank. Good luck.
