To kill code 0442 I did smoke check and found leak point from filler neck.
I found 3 bolts holding the pipes in the wheel well, but wondering how to remove neck part from black plastic part on body at fuel opening.
Anyone help me the procedure to remove the filler neck from the body?

Thanks in advance!

I've never done it on a RAV4 but it looks to me like the plastic piece on the inside picture may be a retaining ring that unscrews from the outer black fixture. With the "fins" on it it may even be possible to do it by hand.
Someone may be able to post an exploded diagram showing it.
In any case it must come out from the underside since there's no way it'll fit thru the hole.

Either it unscrews or the black collar is just one large rubber grommet. The whole assembly looks just like the 2006-2012 version.

It was one rubber grommet. I replaced filler neck to brand new. I found there is hole on old one. Also new one is rubber coated on whole surface (Thanks to Toyota improvement genuine parts. They now new this is bad rust point). Also I remove rust and painted around filler neck from inside. Hope evap code will be deleted.
