Loose Gas Door?

Is your gas door on tight against the vehicle?

Does it sit against that rubber gasket at all? Look from the top, mine doesn't appear to seal. Maybe 2MM gap. Crud gets in. Pushing against the door shows more movement than expected.

Re: Loose Gas Door?

Mine wasn't that bad, but was clearly loose when the door was opened. It was under warranty and they replaced the whole door.

That's not right. Time to visit the dealed for warranty claim.

Re: Loose Gas Door?

I am on my 3rd fuel door housing. Finally have one that has a good seal when it's closed. Hope it lasts longer than a few months. Good luck !!!

Re: Loose Gas Door?

Well, made an appointment to get it checked out.

I do hate how it will usually be 2 weeks out before you can bring it in.

Re: Loose Gas Door?

They verified mine wasn't right. Talked to the tech and he said he's replaced several of them already in the early production molds. Luckily dealer had part in stock.

Now my gas lid is nice and tight. I'm hoping they didn't scratch the surrounding quarter panel though. I saw dust marks all over, but it was too dark to look for scratches. Will do a quick detailer tomorrow.

My fuel door assembly fell off a few weeks ago, not on the road into my hand while pumping gas. They had to replace the whole frame and hinge assembly, guess 3 years is all you get out of it when the entire hinge mechanism assembly is made of plastic.
