Where to get fuel filler parts?

Hi folks. I am checking my dcar out, there is apparently corrosion and the fuel filler tube, fuel filler tube hose, and seal on the tank need replacement. However, Chrysler seems to no longer carry the parts. Are aftermarket ones available, or is scrap yard searching the only possible way? I am going to go in through the access panel and take a look for myself... but just in case, I find it pretty stunning that small parts like that would not be available from some aftermarket company, if not Mopar directly. One would think a steel tube and a hose would be easy...

Thanks in advance for reading this and for your help....

Followup - Gas tank problems

Hi folks. Since getting the car back, I found the trunk access panel under the carpet near the back of the trunk (Right in back of the passenger seat part actually) and also looked under the right side part of the bumper (Where it wraps around the rear of the car.) This allowed me to look at the top of the gas tank and also the bottom/side of the tank and the metal fuel filler tube/flexible fuel filler hose.

I discovered that the metal tube looks sound. The flex hose is weathered after 12 or so years, but it also seems pretty functional. The hose clamps look to be holding pretty well.

When I looked under the access panel to see the top of the fuel tank, I nosices that a circular metal band with a screw clamp had slipped off the top of the fuel pump assembly and slipped down. The entire assembly, which rests on the top of the tank, bobs up and down freely to a light touch. I believe this may be the problem.

I'd like to get down in there but am wary of poking around any more with gas still int he tank (And a prominent odor of fuel at the top of the tank, another indicator to me that this is likely the problem area.) Should I drain the tank first? Would it be OK to siphon the gas out into tanks and put it back in later?

Just asking, I am really new to this sort of stuff with a gas tank and wary of messing with it....

Thanks! David in NJ

Id drop your whole tank and flush it out, you really never want to siphon gas out and put it back in, if you just siphoned it out it would probably be fine, I wouldnt recommend reusing siphoned gas however
