2007 ZX5 Filler (resolved)

ok, 2007 Focus (duh) zx5 ses
fuel moves slow thru filler tube, backs up and spills out
the car is a prior salvage hit in rear (yes, hit it from behind [lol]). i went to check it out after wife wined. i thought that something was in there (tampon or ping pong ball). stuck my grabby tool in there and it gone down just fine till about a foot and a half. the tool grabs somthing but can't pull it out, and i am able to push past it. i did notice the flap on the filler hole is missing. i don't know the mech of that flap, but could that come off? the tube is fine, and it worked fine before. just wondering what others think the possibilities are?

i guess i'm also wondering how to take it off. it looks a little different then the 00-04 down there. not a whole lotta room, and the clamp looks like a collar. do i need to drop the tank?? it's all pretty new so i'm not worried bout rusty bolts, just the time and hassle

i guess this is a common prob on the 05-07s. i guess one of the tubes get crap in it. the shop said they take it off clean it out and put a screen on it.

$100 for service
