Fuel cap
« on: February 27, 2012, 09:22:02 PM »
The strap thingy that holds the fuel cap to the car has snapped off. I wouldn't worry but I've driven off twice now leaving it behind on the pump and had to go back so I need a replacement. Can anyone tell me the part number and where I get one from? Can I change just the strap?

Alicia is this for the Mk3 or Mk2? I have the part numbers for both the "Cap assembly" as VW claim you can't order the strap on its own for the Sharan / Galaxy. I've then got the part number for the strap from a Passat which is a direct fit :)

If its for your Mk3 then that's a go to Ford job.

Don't know if there's a knack to getting the  nozzle in but it does love to keep you waiting before it opens up :D

Reminds me of something else :)

AFAIK its Ford's easy fuel system so you can only use the right nozzle in the hole (oh-er) - again AFAIK, it became standard equipment on the whole Ford range around 59/10 plate.
