    Default Stihl FS90R weed eater - broken tank vent

    So I have an FS90R - doing some regular maintenance to it and noticed the top of the fuel tank vent was missing. Bought a new one but I can't remove the old. Trying with tweezers and small flathead screwdriver. Do I have to remove the fuel tank? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    try putting a few drops of oil or spraying some WD40 around edge of tank vent while you're prying on it with a flat head screwdriver so some of the lubricant works it's way onto the O-Ring that is on the vent. Once it's lubricated, keep working the screwdriver carefully until the vent pops off.
