Re: Clio petrol cover...?? HELP!!


The only way to get it open without snapping it off was to pay Renault the 40 diagnostic fee - they had to take the whole panel apart to get to it. When they told me what was wrong and how much it was to replace it, I asked them to just put it all back together but leave the flap disconnected. So the flap is permanently unlocked. Not ideal but I just make sure I fill up with small amounts incase anyone tries to nick my petrol lol!

I am planning to get a replacement cap - one with a key but I haven't got round to it yet.... I'm only assuming it is possible! If not, I'll have to go back to Renault It is just such a ridiculous thing to happen which is why I refuse to pay over 100 to fix it when it could just happen again.
