97 outback fuel filler pipe
Posted 19 October 2011 - 12:26 PM
Anyways I got that with the 3 screws They are labeled screws for fuel filler top.. Are these the one that replace the screws on the gas inlet? They look different.
I figure I'd do it now it's raining but timing is good since I'm pretty much on a empty tank.
Any tips on removing the hoses?
Is the hose on the evap part hard to remove? I don't think I've seen talk on that part before.

Maybe the new screws are a different size and/or thread pitch than the originals, or maybe they just figure they might be rusted out so you get new ones with it.
I haven't done this job yet, but in general for hoses I use grooved channel locks to grab the hose and twist it clockwise and counter clockwise until its death grip on what it is hooked to is loosened. Then usually they will pull off. Of course care is needed because it can damage the hose.

It's easy enough to see which screws work.
Do they look the same (diameter and thread pitch)?

A bolt head is a definate improvement. I still always anti-seized them.
