    Verging on the uber trivial here, but my fuel cap cable snapped today - is there such a thing as a replacement part out there?

    It would be easier if you put your car in the Garage all these post would be negated and you get your answer quicker? Just looking up the part number.

    @Moniker the fuel lid is actually released fuel fill door actuator so its electronic buddy.
    Check the fuse or you need to remove all this to get to it

    Remove these items:

    • Tailgate weatherstrip, as needed
    • Tonneau cover and cargo net, for some models
    • Under floor cover
    • Rear seat cushion
    • Rear seat belt lower anchor, left side
    • Rear seat side bolster, left side
    • Damper maintenance lid, left side
    • Cargo net striker, left side
    • Rear seat belt anchor wire, left side
    • Cargo area side trim panel, left side

    @Moniker are you referring to the plastic cable that attaches the filler cap to the car? If so, it is part of the cap itself. ~ £25 ish

    i.e No. 19? (17670-SMJ-E02)

    Fuel cap zoom1.

    I assumed it was this because he described it as ' uber trivial' :Unknown:
