RE: 2003 VW Jetta Accessing top of fuel tank
For things like that you usually need to drop the tank out of the vehicle or at least lower it enough to get a hand in there, which means having the fuel level low enough to be able to handle the tank without causing a spill. If you have never done this before you may be in for a rude suprise as how hard it is to balance a tank with even a few gallons sloshing around.

Precautions: No smoking, no drop lights, battery disconnected, nothing that can cause a spark, etc. I have seen professional shops burn to the ground from a small fuel spill so be really careful!
