2002 Chevy Venture Fuel Tank Inlet Check Valve

Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 88,000 miles

I discovered that the rubber hose connecting the fuel fill tube to the gas tank was broken loose from the gas tank today. The plastic piece connecting the hose to the tank is what is broken. I checked online and found a recall for this part for my year/make/model, but my VIN was not covered according to the rep I spoke with on the phone. The recall info online stated that GM's remedy for the recall was to replace the entire gas tank. I'm trying to find out if that is what I'm going to have to do or if there is a way to replace just the ICV. It's hard to tell if it pressed in place or if it is threaded onto the tank. I also haven't been able to find the ICV online at any of the generic parts places, but discovered the problem too late in the day to check the dealer. Thank you for whatever guidance you can provide.

Do you
have the same problem?

The (inlet check valve) ICV is not likely screwed into the tank filler tube. Best bet is to replace the entire tank. This is either a dealership or salvage yard item. Call around to see if a yard has one for a good price. Places like pull-a-part rupture their gas tanks (on purpose--EPA regulations) so they will not have one for ya.

Check with another dealer to be sure that your VIN isn't involved in the recall.
