Unhappy Fuel filler cap broke! :-(

Got my new 2007 Civic Type S only yesterday and just been to fill it up with some petrol only to find that the lever by the pedals wont open the filler cap.

There is some resistance against the boot opening lever and you can feel that it work. As for the petrol cap lever it just pulls with no resistance at all.

I looked like a right plonker at the petrol station, tried everything to get the cap open but nothing, will have to go back to the garage in the morning and get them to fix it.


Annoyed that the garage told me they had filled it up with 10 petrol when I picked it up but obviously not unless they were the ones who broke the lever.

Anyone else had this problem and was it a big deal to fix?

Thanks, stevey_p7
