Enes : You remove right side wheel
Enes : then wheel arch plastic around fender from under it gets hold by few rivets and rest is snaped in place
Enes : then after you pull that on fuel door you will like snap ring around that rubber boot around filler neck in fuel door compartment remove that spring and push boot inside the car now the filler neck is very loose
Enes : now go under car locate the clamp it will be crimp clamp use long pry bar brake the clamp away use new screw clamp use good clamp or they will brake
Enes : after you got that Clamp th filler neck will come out
Enes : be carful work with almost empty fuel tank

Thank you for your answer but having looked at where the pipe runs, with the drive shaft and everything else in such a confined space on the AWD (4 wheel drive) it does not appear to be possible- are the instructions you sent not for a two (front) wheel drive V70

Enes : Awd is same info but very thight space
Enes : you need lot experience so to say but we do without removing anything.
