Fig. 1 Fuel door removal

To remove the fuel door, start by opening it to access the inside. Look for any screws or bolts securing the fuel door assembly to the body of the vehicle. These fasteners may be hidden behind trim pieces or rubber gaskets. Using the appropriate tools like a screwdriver or socket wrench, carefully remove these fasteners. Be cautious not to damage surrounding paint or trim during this process.

Once the fasteners are removed, gently pull the fuel door assembly away from the vehicle's body. Take care not to force it or cause any unnecessary strain. If there are any electrical connectors or cables attached to the fuel door, disconnect them carefully. This step ensures that the door can be fully removed without any obstructions.

Now, for the installation, start by aligning the new fuel door assembly with the opening on the vehicle's body. Reconnect any electrical connectors or cables that were detached during the removal process. Carefully position the fuel door assembly to ensure it sits flush against the body without any gaps or misalignment. Insert and tighten the screws or bolts to secure the fuel door assembly in place, following the manufacturer's specifications. Test the fuel door by opening and closing it to ensure proper operation and alignment. Once confirmed, close the fuel door securely, and your installation is complete.

Always refer to the vehicle's service manual or consult with a professional mechanic if you're unsure about any step in the process.
