    I finally tore the back end apart to find my water leak. Well i found it. Its the metal part that covers the fuel filler tube that attaches to the inside of the quarter panel and the floor. Looks like its just screwed on with sealent in between. I'm not sure what they call it but every book that I have doesn't even show it. Does anyone know what its called and where I can get one. Kinda weird no rust anywhere else around it, but this thing has got a pretty good size hole rusted through it. Thanks for any help.

    I don't know where you could get one at, but it sounds like it would be pretty easy to just fab one up in your garage. Is there anything to the part that would make it hard to fab?

    i think your best bet would be to find one in a yard or just fab one up yourself out of some tin.

    keep searching, GM does make a replacement part that you're looking for...
    when i bought my k5 the old one had been removed since it was so rusty, and the previous owner had bought a replacement, just didnt install it...
    it definately had a genuine gm sticker on it with part number when i installed it.
    call a dealership, they should be able to get one..

    Re: Found the leak now I need to find this part

    Well I checked the dealership yesterday and no luck. The part is discontinued. I then went to a body shop I know well and they did a search that checks thousands of dealerships to see if they have one on there shelf since its discontinued and no luck there either. And no one makes a after market one that we could find either. So I got the old one off in one peice and the outer collar is in good shape so a buddy of mine is going to try to sandblast it down and grind back to good metal and patch it . Hopefuuly that will work out. Thanks for the replies everyone.

    If anyone knows where to get one of these please let me know.!!! I might be able to still fix the old one but not sure... wasn't much left after the sandblast cabinet and I was taking it easy. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks rampage. Called them first thing this morning and ordered one. I had an old cheyenne catalog and it didn't show it. As far as I know they are the only ones who offer this. Thanks again

    In catalog #120 it's on page 136, same as on their screwed up web page. Glad to be of help.
