Floppy Fuel Flap

Hi Folks

When opening my fuel flap to refuel, I've recently noticed that it wont stay in the open position for long, it seems like it's lost its 'springy-ness'. What I find annoying is that it keeps closing on me while i've got my hand and fuel pump there.

Anyone know of a fix???

Put the fuel filler cap once unscrewed onto its holding place on the flap - it won't allow it to close then :) That's, what I do. Mine fails to stay open also :)

There should be a little springy piece of metal on the inside of the fuel flap door.

Perhaps yours has come off or broken or something ...

This was mentioned in another thread a few days ago. Not sure if that was the thread main subject though.

Think the result in that case was to just replace that springy bit - just a cheap part to get.

Perhaps people thinking this was the same thread and thus not replying.
