94 Ford Ranger. I need to replace the fuel tank filler hose.

Resolved Question:

94 Ford Ranger. I need to replace the fuel tank filler hose. Can this be done without
removing the bed of the truck? It passed smog, but not the evap test, they detected
a small gas leak. If I can do the work, do I need to buy Ford parts. I don't have any
air tools, if those are needed.

first off i would definately recomend OEM Ford parts for something like EVAP since the toleranced are very specific. to replace this you do not have to remove the bed, i will list the procedure. please ensure before installing new parts that all mating surfaces are thouroughly cleaned to prevent leaks.

I don't know how to remove the hose from the gas tank. How
do I get my hand, and tool in there to remove screw clamps on the
main gas tank.
Expert:  Ford snr master replied 8 years ago.
you should be able to lay under the vehicle, or on ramps or jackstands if done properly and safely, and reach your hand over the fueltank with a small flathead screwdriver , or they might use a 7mm head ,then use a small 1/4 ratchet with shallow socket.
