REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Unscrew the fuel filler cap. The cap has a pre-vent feature that allows the tank to vent for the first 3 / 4 turn before unthreading.
- Remove the screw retaining the fuel cap tether and remove the fuel cap.
Use of an aftermarket fuel filler cap other than an authorized Ford/Motorcraft or equivalent service part could result in damage to the fuel system or improper system operation if not properly designed for pressure and vacuum relief.
- Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. When installing the cap, continue to turn clockwise until the ratchet mechanism gives off 3 or more loud clicks.
