mitchbp6 Posted October 7, 2018 Share Posted October 7, 2018 (edited) Hey Everyone! I am assuming this is not a common job that is done to the 4th gen legacy since I could not find any content on this when searching google. I am currently in the works of replacing my fuel fuller neck on my 05 Legacy GT Wagon. I have all the hoses and any bolts/clamps removed. The neck is hanging free, however I do not appear to have enough room to wiggle the fuel filler neck out from the car. It is getting caught on the fill area since there is not enough room for the neck to move down before getting caught on the rear sub frame. I thought I would have enough room to wiggle it out once I had everything disconnected, but it appears I may not. Has anyone had any experience with removing a fuel filler neck from their 05 legacy? Some background: I have been smelling a strong fuel smell every time I fill the vehicle to full ONLY on the passenger side, around the filler neck area ONLY. I have replaced the fuel cap already with another genuine subaru cap. I am smelling NO fuel in the cabin, and it is not evident on the drivers side of the vehicle. Gas tank appears to be okay from what I could see, I will need to take a better look though still. I though why not just replace the filler neck first and see if this clears things up. I have been getting an engine code since I have owned it (2 years) for a very small EVAP leak. Long story short, I decided to try and tackle this issue finally, and I am starting with the filler neck. Has anyone ever had any experience with this? Can this be removed without removing some suspension/sub frame components? Thanks in advance!!! Edited March 23, 2019 by mitchbp6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
