Default 2003 Pt Cruiser help

Ok so I have this 2003 Pt Cruiser. ( I think base model ) Took it to be fueled up only to have the gas station attendant ram the nozzle in so hard that it broke the bracket which was holding the fuel line in. *facepalms* I am new here and I have no idea what its called, or how much it will cost to get it replaced in Canada. Being a woman the mechanics around here tend to try to rip me off blind because I really have no idea about cars. Attaching pictures and any and all help will be much appreciated.




Thanks in advance
Saetet.

Wow I can't believe the guy broke that, I'm not sure what it is called so you will have to wait for someone else to come along like Crewzin. Your most likely going to get a check engine light because it will sense the a leak "faulty cap" Don't sweat the light, when you get the part you can take off the negative battery cable for a few minutes.

Yeah my husband is pretty pissed, wants me to get the guy who doesn't speak much english mind you to pay for it.. :S But I cannot get the part if I don't know what it is. Looks like a pretty easy fix though ( I hope ). Thanks for the help.

It's called a fuel filler neck according to my manual but I can't find a part number. Take a ride to the dealer Monday or a scrap yard and get the part and than bring the recite to the guys boss who broke it.

There is a guy selling parts in our sales forum, I'm sure he didn't get rid of this part yet I never knew you could even break it.

I don't think its the fuel filler neck its the bracket which holds the neck up that's broken. I sincerely hope I don't have to replace the whole works just because some guy broke my bracket

Well I have now tied the gas tank knob to the screw of the bracket that broke, I have the bracket in the house now. Can take a pic. Just to keep the tube from falling any further into the panel. will post a pic in a sec.

I hate to say it but I think it's all one part I was looking at the manual and it's not 123. I wish I could cut and paste it but it's in adobe.
