Hello all and Happy Thanksgiving, The fuel filler neck has some rust pits on it and has to be replaced. Finding a replacement filler neck is easy enough. I would like to get the whole hose assembly out to work on it properly. How do I release the quick disconnects on the tank end of the filler hose?

What vehicle?
My 92 Dakota had pinholes in the upper filler neck a few years ago, and I found one online to replace it. There is also a fiber-reinforced rubber hose that connects it to a lower metal pipe that goes into the tank and grommet. No quick-disconnects there. The rubber hose was held on with screw clamps.

Quick-disconnect hose end 'rings' are usually 'pinched' to release them. Use caution as aged, cold plastic is brittle and can break.
Some have 'horseshoe' locking clips. Some use a tool similar to A/C hose coupling disconnects.

FYI the build date is 30 July 98. I know there seems to be a change in the ' 99 model year after 4 Jan 99. Might be relevant.

Never saw anything like that. Sorry I can't help.

It looks like a 'sleeve' on the large hose that needs to be pulled back. You might want to push the hose further onto the nipple first in order to release the sleeve. Either a retainer under the sleeve will be exposed or the sleeve itself is the retainer that can be pulled back. Then pull the hose off the nipple.
I can see the 4 barbs on the circumference of the smaller hose. Again, you may want to first push the hose further onto the nipple, push the white nylon ring/barbs back into the hose, then try to pull the hose off of the nipple.
It may take both hands and some type of 'forked' tool or 'pick' to get in there to release the coupling latch.

This is almost getting weird. I looked at the e-manuals Mr. Imperial Crown sent me a while back and it had nothing like it. But, at the same time, it did not have a '99 Dakota either. On the same token, there is one complete assembly for sale on ebay that they some how managed to get off in 1 piece. Probably like changing plugs on a Hemi without an extension. HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Just a little update to this minor headache. After visiting a salvage yard or two, found out that both hoses were held on with quick disconnects similar to an air hose coupling or 134a connector on the large hose and the vent hose has a metal ring that you pull toward the outside of the ruck with your fingers and it releases the 4 clips that hold it on. Took all of 5 minutes to get it apart once that question was answered. Went together just as quick. Worth the research to do it right!

I have the same gas tank and my straps broke and the gas tank fell. When I replace the straps and reconnected the hose for the gas fill, the connection leaks. For the larger gas filler hose, I see the quick connect but when I pull back on the connector and insert it onto the gas tank the hose does not appear to insert all the way. What am I missing on connecting the gas fill hose?

Gas fill? If you're referring to the filler pipe from the gas cap, it just inserts into the gas tank.
Quick-connects are not on a filler pipe, they are used on the lines from the pump to the engine - supply, return and vent.

thanks for quick response! On the left is the vent supply and on the right is the gas tank filler? connection. I thought is would simply snap on to the orange nipple but I can pull on the hose and the connector simple slides off. What am I missing?

OK, that's something more modern than what I have had on my cars. Sorry, no experience with these.
