Laguna III fuel cap assembly removal (not just the flap)
The fuel filler cap on my 08 plate Laguna III would not open. but I was able to remove the trim cover and get the filler cap flap open at the petrol station by manipulating the internal latching pin inside the fuel filler cap.
It looks like the moveable latch inside the flap is broken. It is not biased in any position and just flaps around freely, up and down (engine off).
Having unscrewed the six TorX screws and removed the two small plastic trims, how does the complete assembly get removed from the car. It does not seem to clear the two horizontal steel brackets, top and bottom, formed by the exterior bodywork into which four of the six TorX screws are bolted?
It does not come out through the inside boot area as there is an inner flitch plate ?
