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

Has anyone tried giving the solenoid lock a good blast with WD40 or the like - may only be sticking.
Also a decent independent garage may charge a whole lot less after all most Renault dealers charge around 80 an hour labour. In the past I have been able to repair numerous locking solenoids with just a good clean up.
Also if some vandal yanks the unlocked door of its hinges it'll end up costing a helluva lot more. Worse still they end up peeing into the fuel filler. Yes sometimes repairs can be expensive but the alternative may cost much more in the long run.
Currently in madnoel10's garage:
Honda Civic 1.4l
