Filler Housing Pops Out

This bulletin applies to 2009-2011 Ram 2500 pickup trucks equipped with a 6.7L diesel engine and a single rear wheel axle, built before Aug. 9, 2010. The fuel filler close-out housing may pop out of the sheet metal.

This involves removing the fuel filler close-out housing and filing some material off of the tabs that will not lock into place. If tabs are broken, it will be necessary to replace the housing and it still me be necessary to file material off of the tabs.

1. Remove the fuel cap.

2. Inspect the fuel filler close-out housing.

3. Pull out the fuel filler close-out housing 3 to 4 times with moderate force.

4. If the housing dislodges any tabs, remove the fuel filler close-out housing by depressing the remaining tabs and pulling out the housing.

5. If tab(s) are broken, replace the housing.

6. Using a small file, remove some of the material from the flat on the tabs that would not lock into place. Only file enough material from the tab(s) to allow the fuel filler close-out housing to lock into place. Reinstall the housing.

Inspect the locking tabs for damage.
