I had same issue as this on my laguna for the last couple of days and I was driving about with the fuel light on so was getting desperate! I managed to get it open and I cut off the locking pin off as described above. I just need to find a locking fuel cap now. Anyone know where I can get one of these? Or would it be easier to get a new locking pin and fix the current system?


***edit*** I called Halfords and they wanted 23.21 for a locking fuel cap. This seems pricey to me as I got a chrome one for my saxo (boy racer days) for 25.
Just found a local place will do it for 14.50 so I ordered this.

1999 Renault Laguna 1.6 RT Sport
