    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.

    If the Bose sub is on the same side as your filler cap, then yes mate.
