    Broken fuel cap locking pin

    Hi all
    i noticed yesterday that the pin that slips acros the back of the fuel flap to lock it is broken! It's just wobbly a loose, like something has come adrift.
    Any one had this happen? I'm guessing it's a wheel off wheel arch lining out to see what's happened type of job??

    Thanks for reading

    If I remember correctly Paul, it's a boot trim out kinda job haha.. The rod is just attached to the end if a solenoid, so could well have come adrift.

    Yes, Arrkon is right. The mechanism is inside the boot, concealed behind the side trim.
