Removal of Fuel Filler Tube Bezel ?

I am going to restore my '85 Wagoneer with original Dinoc 3M woodgrain. Will see if it still sticks. There is a production label from 1999 or like that on it.

I already removed the moldings which was very easy, took 15 minutes. I used a very simple "tool": kite-string
soft enough to make no scratches, thin and stabil enough to cut the old 3M tape as if it was like butter.

2 questions:

I need to remove the "Fuel Filler Tube Bezel" now.
The metal part inside has no screws anymore (I expected to find 6 screws but probably removed in earlier years). the metal part is absolutely firm/fixed and does not dangle/wobble at all. Has anyone an idea how to try?
Or are the parts here in wrong order? Should the so called "TUBE, Air Filler" be behind the "Tube Bezel"?

While it was very easy to remove the moldings it is more painful to clean them from the old 3M tape. I use different kind of putty knifes.
Has anyone also used some fluids (practical experience) to support this procedure and like to recommend this? I might use this for the car panels too... nFlWGhlSHVxN1VmLUNTWWpSc0otNmR6R0N3X3hB
