The window I've fixed but I don't know how to replace the fuel flap, can anyone tell me how to take the old one out and fit a new one?
Does it involve removing trim from the inside or can it be done from the exterior?
any pointers will be greatly appreciated?

Hello zouga, you need to remove the RHS interior trim in the boot, then its just 2 nuts that hold the filler flap on ... 1/2 hour max ... Tip ... paint it first ...

hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
