I called the dealer but they need me to drop the car off for the day and it just hasn't been worth the time yet. Today I decided to take a look at it and I am stumped as to how the spring is supposed to attach to the door. I looked through the manual archived on this site and couldn't find anything about it either. Has anyone had a similar problem and been able to fix it or have any pictures of the spring correctly installed? I haven't had a chance to stop by the dealer to look at one on the lot. Any help would be great!
* I fix mind. It took me 5 min to figure it out.
The problem is metal clip. Metal clip slides in to far or pop out.
I remove metal clip. Them reinstall it.
You have to put left side in first. Then close door enough and force right side on. Only enough to clip on. Make sure clip is at top.
If its on correctly the middle of metal clip will be free not touching anything.
Fuel door will work just like if it was new.
If you need more information let me know.
Note metal clip you have to force it a little. Not much when fuel door is slightly close.
Note: no need to replace clip if it pop off or in place but not working correctly meaning clip just off center and can be fix by removing it and reinstall it as I mention above steps. Take you time its not hard.
