IS 300h fuel filler flap snapped off.

Recommended Posts

  Hi guys. I'm with this forum for a while, but this will be my first post. 
    I had a problem, which I can't sort out by myself. 
While fuelling up a week ago, I snapped off my fuel filler flap. I found a replacement, but I have no idea how to take off the plastic pocket in which the flap is sitting. 
    I unscrewed four screws, I managed to remove the switch, but it is impossible to take off the whole pocket because it is still held by the central locking mechanism. 
   I tried to get into it from inside the boot, impossible, I tried from the back seats, impossible. The mechanism is behind a structural metal sheet. So, I have no idea, how to get there. There is nothing nowhere on internet about this issue, or if there is I just can't find it. 
   Can anybody help me with that, before I get it done by Lexus garage?  
   The second picture is of the replacement part.
