Hi Guys,

My Fuel cap wont stay in the closed and locked position, i can open it with my fingers at the cap itself when it should only be able to be opend from inside the car.

Any comments?

Mine does this too. Must be a common fault!

Also spray some Wd40 into the release mechanism cable and keep pulling the release lever over and over as the petrol vapour thins out the lubricant.
