Help, broke down...gas leaking everywhere.

Cruising down the highway, got a strong smell of gas. Pulled over at a gas station. An Indy came by and sees the issue but I need to gain access to the top of the engine.

How do you remove the access panel in a 2015 Fleetwood Discovery 37R?

Yes, it is diesel.
It was everywhere. The toad was covered.
Turned out to be a cracked diesel fuel line at the #1 injector.
Was fortunate that I found an INDY a block away from where we broke down and he was able to get the part and had me on the road in 7 hours.

It beat calling a tow truck and taking me 50 miles to a facility who couldnít work on the coach for several days.

The new fuel line was updated and included a bracket which I assume was to limit vibrations that may create another crack in the future?

It wasnít easy to get all the diesel fuel smell out of the RV and off the engine and nearby accessories though.......ugh!!!
