Re: Scenic - has my petrol tank warped?

What tends to happen is the thread on the tank will go oval shaped making it very difficult to get the threaded ring on straight and not cross threaded.Patience can pay off,as can a little light grease on the threads,but you really,really do have to make sure that it does up straight.You'll probably find that it will start OK,then as you turn it part of the thread will 'jump off' and the ring will start to go on cross threaded.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.
