rav 4.2 fuel filler neck

Recommended Posts

ok this must be a common problem

the wifey drives a 2005 rav 4.2 d4d 1cdftv 

After "having kittens" thinking my rear diff was graunching into oblivion it turned out that the fuel filler plastic cover was damp and distorted causing a rotational scuffing noise  on the wobble of the tyre that sounded like metal to metal .

Anyway removed that and the metal pipe was red rotten, went to clean it up and it started falling in on itself so now need to get a new neck and filter to go with it.

problem is i might be unlucky but on the usual sites i can only find mk3 d4d necks ! Are the the same pipe as the mk2?? i see petrol ones but they look different

someone steer me in right direction ta

ok it does not fit.

I asked supplier and bought it but nope its not even close its miles too big and wrong shape completely

Suppose i will need to get one from toyota if available as there seem to be none floating about on the internet for my vintage.

Was thinking of a bodge as others have done with hose or similar but id rather replace completely to save any more debris finding its way into tank and also not a lot of wheel clearance 

So need to return this and pay return postage lol waste of time ! 

 

thanks anyway

Just to conclude this thread on an older model that probably wont see much demand for this type of repair by folk in the future. but may help someone 

Got that aftermarket filler neck which was the correct type with the part number supplied by flash22 , fitted perfect and is solid.

I thought i was gonna have major bolt snapping issues but it went better than i expected.

Only the top bolt that goes through a captive nut on a bracket welded to chassis would not budge due to the exposed threads at the back becoming well deformed with rust, so just drilled and speed screwed that, the other 2 bolts into chassis came free with a couple of hammer shocks to the socket, the main jubilee clip had to be "corn beef tin mullered" with some vise grips but the small breather spring clip was no bother.

just try minimise rust falling into tank on removal, i replaced the fuel filter as a precaution 

The fill tube piece at filler fuel flap door just popped out and in to the rubber gaiter piece no problems. 

i gave a few coatings of plastidip after these pics were taken as i had it spare and not bothering to fit the plastic trim that lets road debris accumulate  ,
