I had to pay 40 for them to have a look at the car then a further 90+ vat to replace the "solenoid". I told them to forget it and leave it disconnected! At least now I can fill up.

I am now going to replace it with one from Halfords that doesnt rely on electrics!

It all happened just outside of the warranty and something like this just shouldn't be allowed to happen.

Sorry this doesnt help you


Have you been able to get the fuel cover open.

How do you intend to overcome the cover problem after fitting a cap from good old Halfrauds?
