Many thanks again to Scenic Fidji
The fuel flaps on 1999-2003 Scenics are very weak as you have found out you see a lot of Scenic's with them missing and car breakers ask anything up to 30!!

Pre 1999 Scenic fuel flaps are much stronger and are interchangable with post 1999 Scenics but the lock plunger catch doesn't engage. I used a 1998 fuel flap on my 2001 Scenic until I found a 2nd hand one that was the right colour.

The boot lock button design on post 1999 Scenic's is also another re-designed part which isn't as strong and regularly break! these are also interchangable with the earlier Scenic.
