Brother John, you've removed as much as you can for access to the filler. Remove the hose clamps/bands that secure the fill tube and vent tube and then remove the screws around the gas cap that secure the fill tube to the body. With the gas cap off, go below and pull the hose and filler neck down and work the hoses lose with a pair of channel lock pliers and sticking a screwdriver between the metal tube and hose to break the seal. Put on the new filler neck and stick it back up in the body and put the screws back in. THEN put the hose clamps back up and tighten them, put the gas cap back on and your done.

Fuel filler neck


Hi I'm Peter, Not sure what your problem is from just posting fuel filler neck however I am assuming you have a strong gas smell. The rubber hose that connects the filler pipe on the tank to the fuel spout may be cracked and leaking. Another common problem is the tank vent tube that runs from the tank up along side the filler tube may be rubbing on the metal part of the tube and has a hole in it. This will give you the strong fume smell and possible fuel leak as will the rubber filler tube when the tank is full. These vehicles are known for this problem and also the metal filler pipe rusting causing a pin ole. Look to see if you can see rust anywhere . Even if you don't see rust on the outside does not mean there is not rust on the inside. I have seen where a lot of people have been have the rust issue also to the point they carry the part at auto parts stores . Hope this is what you needed.

Do i have to drop the tank to replace feul pump on 1998 ford thunder bird


Yes, the pump is inside the tank. Good luck!
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.

NOTE

All vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pickup during cornering and under low fuel operating conditions. These reservoirs could block siphon tubes or hoses from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts using different hose orientations can overcome this obstacle.


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the exhaust pipe and exhaust shield, if equipped. Disconnect the fuel fill and vent hoses connecting the filler pipe to the tank. Disconnect one end of the vapor crossover hose at the rear over the driveshaft.
  3. If equipped with a metal retainer that fastens the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw attaching the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  4. Disconnect the fuel lines and the electrical connector to the fuel tank sending unit. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In these cases they must be disconnected with the tank partially removed.
  5. Place a safety support under the fuel tank and remove the bolts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way. Be careful not to deform the fuel tank.
  6. Partially remove the tank and disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connector from the sending unit, if required.
  7. Remove the tank from the vehicle.

To install:

  1. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. Connect the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector if it is necessary to connect them before the tank is in the final installed position.
  2. Lubricate the fuel filler pipe with water base tire mounting lubricant and install the tank onto the filler pipe, then bring the tank into final position. Be careful not to deform the tank.
  3. Bring the fuel tank straps around the tank and start the retaining nut or bolt. Align the tank with the straps. If equipped, make sure the fuel tank shields are installed with the straps and are positioned correctly on the tank. Align the tank with the driveshaft.
  4. Check the hoses and wiring mounted on the tank top to make sure they are correctly routed and will not be pinched between the tank and body. Make sure the fuel vent hose is positioned above the vent retainer and not contacting the driveshaft.
  5. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 22-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm).
  6. If not already connected, connect the fuel hoses and lines which were disconnected. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return, if present, and vapor vent connections are made correctly. If not already connected, connect the sending unit electrical connector.
  7. Install the exhaust pipe shield, if equipped, and exhaust pipe.
  8. Lower the vehicle. Replace the fuel that was drained from the tank. Check all connections for leaks.

  1. Release the fuel system pressure using the recommended procedure.
  2. Remove the fuel pump unit through the access panel in the floor of the trunk. Drain the fuel tank into a portable fuel siphoning container through the opening in the fuel tank where the fuel pump is mounted.

Prior to disconnecting fuel lines, wrap a shop rag around the connections to absorb any fuel spillage due to residual pressure in the lines.
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove both rear tires.
  3. Remove the exhaust pipe rubber insulators off the mounting studs of the rear of the vehicle and in front of the fuel tank.
  4. Using grease pencil or paint marker, place alignment marks on the fuel filler hose, filler tube, vent hose and vent tube.
  5. Remove the rear splash shield from the right rear wheel well.
  6. Disconnect the fuel filler hose and the vent hose near the fuel filter.

  1. Disconnect both ends of the sway bar from the stabilizer links. Use a grease pencil or paint marker to outline the position of the crossmember ends on the frame rail.

  1. Remove the crossmember mounting bolts and pull the crossmember down until it stops.

  1. Place a transmission jack under the fuel tank to support its weight.

The sway bar bracket bolts must be replaced after loosening or removal. Only use original equipment bolts as replacement.
  1. Remove the sway bar mounting bracket, heat shield and fuel tank strap. To prevent the sway bar from falling down, install sway bar mounting bracket with the bolts finger-tight only.

  1. Carefully and slowly lower the front of the fuel tank. Slide the tank away from the crossmember while pushing the filler vent and fill tube over the crossmember. Detach any remaining fuel or electrical connections. Lower the fuel tank.

To install:
  1. Position the tank on the transmission jack or other suitable lift, with the shield and the tank strap in place. Raise the tank over the crossmember and place it in the proper position. Be sure that the electrical connector, pressure relief/rollover valve hose, fuel supply and return lines are accessible through the opening in the trunk. Check to be sure that nothing is pinched or kinked in any way.
  2. Push the vent and the filler tube over the crossmember. Rotate the sway bar into position and install the sway bar brackets.
  3. Raise the tank into place and position the sway bar mounting bracket and the tank straps in place. Tighten the bolts to 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm).
  4. Raise the crossmember into position and align with the locating marks made during removal. Install bolts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the filler tube and vent tube making sure to align with the marks made during removal.
  6. Connect the sway bar ends to the link arms and tighten sway bar mounting nuts to 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm).
  7. Install the exhaust onto the hangers. Install the rear splash shield in the right rear wheel well.
  8. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle.
  10. Install the fuel pump module.
  11. Connect the fuel supply, return and vent tubes. After installation of the quick-connect fittings, check for proper connection by pulling back on the quick-connect fitting. The tube should lock in place. If the connection is not complete, make sure the black plastic ring is not causing the locking retainer to jam in the release position.
  12. Install the fuel pump access cover and gasket. Tighten the fasteners and install the trunk liner.
  13. Install the filler cap and reconnect the negative battery cable.
  14. With the ignition in the ON position, access the DRB III ASD Fuel System Test to pressurize the fuel system. Check for leaks.

  1. Check the rear wheel alignment and adjust, if necessary.
