I'm trying to find a replacement part for a 2005 Saturn ION.
There seems to be some detachable receptacle type thing to which the gas cap screws in. The gas cap itself is fine, but one of the plastic tabs that holds this receptacle in place has snapped off, and now the entire receptacle is loose and can come out of the gas tank. This exposes the entry point for gasoline into the gas tank, which I assume is fairly dangerous.
When I search for parts, all that I can seem to find is the cap itself, which I do not need. I need the part to which the cap screws in.
Does anyone know what this part might be more appropriately named?
In this picture, you can see the part that comes out of the gas tank filler hole. The gas cap is still screwed into it. Notice that it appears as though it is meant to lock into place on the car, but part of the locking mechanism has broken off.
This is the orifice where the part plugs in. I assume this is the top of the filler tube leading to the gas tank.
