So I got a 2000 firebird V-6 automatic trans fluid was leaking out from the trans filler tube grommet. I was able to take out the filler tube but now can't seem to replace the trans filler tube grommet without ripping the new grommet. I was wondering if this means my filler tube is probably bent wrong as in the previous owners took it out and messed it up. The problem is I put the new grommet in place and when I try re-inserting the filler tube I can't quite center it as its going in. It scrapes the side of the opening and rips the new grommet in the process. I'v tried taking out the trans crossmember and lowering the trans but no luck. Am I gonna have to drop the whole engine and trans together just to replace this one little grommet?
