    Hi,

    Noticed my fuel filler cap doesn't lock with the central locking. Upon investigation I noticed the motor/solenoid has dislodged and loose behind the brake light cluster. Are these easy to put back into place?

    Any help would be very much appreciated :)

    urm, i dont know. If i had found my fuel cap not releasing then i would check the "grenade" ring pull that is in the boot behind the right hand cover. If the locking mechanism doesnt work when opening the car then you can pull the ring pull to release the lock on the fuel cap cover.

    But as to the ease of reinstalling the locking mechanism i havent a clue
