Fuel filler grommet installation
1990 Mustang GT
Yeah, I know there are other threads and even an article with pictures (only shows before/after, not during). They all say "it's easy - just pops right in", but this grommet is stiff, thick and much bigger than the hole (a good 1/4" all around). There's no way this is going in easy. All the YouTube videos, including CJPony, show before/after also, not the actual installation.
It's a new gas tank, that's actually sitting on sawhorses, so no issue with access. But even with grease there's no way this thing is going in by hand. And yes, it's the right grommet because I bought another from a different place thinking that was the problem. So before I take a mallet or screwdriver to the thing, what's the trick?
