Default access to vent valve solenoid

Our 2006 Relay has the engine light on, and the code is p0449, which is apparently indicative of a problem with the vent valve solenoid. From what I've found online, in order to get to the vent valve solenoid, you have to remove the fuel tank.

So, how hard is it to remove the fuel tank? I've never tackled a job that seems that "big". Also, how dangerous is it? Do you have to remove any fuel lines in order to do this, or is it just some bolts and the tank comes down, and then you can get to the stuff that's laying on top of it?

Thanks!

Mike

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: access to vent valve solenoid

All fuel tanks have their lines, electrical connections, and any hardware laying on top of the tank. Any issues with parts on the tank simply means dropping the tank for access. To be sure you're going in the right direction, it may help to use service manuals. Tried Autozone? They may have free info and procedures. Other sources for specific info would be a subscription to alldata.diy or your local library if they have a free account with alldata.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
