Fix for capless filler

Today I replaced my capless filler with a cap type. I bought my cap type from rockauto for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel that they have listed.

Re: Fix for capless filler

It is really easy to do too.
1.Jackup left rear and remove the tire
2. You will see the removalable plastic keepers that hold the felt wheel well liner in place, I removed all of them but the plastic reivets
3. You will see at the top rear of the wheel well a 10mm head bolt remove it
4. the lower front of the wheel well is another bolt remove it.
5. Carefully pull down the wheel well liner, it will not come completely out because of those plastic rivets you did not remove
6. You will see at the top 2 10mm nuts holding a electrical device and the filler tube, remove those and sit the electrical device aside
7. There is also another 10mm nut looking towards the front of the wheel well remove it.
8. There are 2 vent lines attached to the tube, disconnect them
9. There is at the bottom front of the wheel well a rubber hose with a hose clamp on it, loosen the clamp and twist the filler tube of the hose and remove it.
10. Assembly is as easy.

Re: Fix for capless filler

Not my GC, but what I did...



1. Open fuel filler door.
2. Place cap over filler.

Assembly is easy.

Re: Fix for capless filler

Is that a spray paint cap?

MDBones,

Did you remove the green plastic "DIESEL" crown around the filler neck?

If the diesel comes with the green ring, then I believe the owner of the Jeep in that picture did. Mine is just a plain black cap off a large can of hornet spray. Mine just has the Good Housekeeping seal of approval on it.

Re: Fix for capless filler

May I ask why one would want to make this modification? What's wrong with the capless setup?

Re: Fix for capless filler

Because the fuel door itself does not seal against water and dirt. Either can get past it and potentially into the capless filler. It's basically just peace of mind cheap insurance.
