The plastic used in the fuel covers is notoriously difficult to glue. To stand any chance you would need all the parts assembled on the bench. It may well be worth a try and getting a suitable adhesive may be difficult.

Good luck and let us know if you succeed.:)

Appears to be glued on with UHU... strange to not actually just have it as one unit, not some cosmetic piece of plastic!

I used q-bond http://www.consumablesexpress.co.uk/acatalog/copy_of_ADHESIVES.html?gclid=CInagOSenakCFVJX4QodHgpptg

and used the powder to build fillets in the corners of the broken spring retaining lug that was several months ago now. IIRC the petrol flaps are meade from ABS.

The earlier Scenic MK1 Phase 1 petrol flaps are much stronger as they are double skined and have a different hinge arangement. They are interchangable with the MK1 Phase 2 but the locking plunger catches are different heights so won't lock.

Tiger Seal is a great PU adhesive, a bit messy to apply (if you are too liberal), and the only drawback is that it takes at least a day to go off (so it needs clamping/taping in place).

I've used it to reattach wing mirrors, and its intended to affix spoilers/body kits - so it is very strong.
