    One of Pete's oil filler caps

    I have one of the above, at the minute I am attempting to prize away the inner part of the existing filler cap, this is proving to be most difficult and I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to do it

    IIRC yours is a 1.8 sxi like mine was

    if it is then you need to cut it with a hacksaw and bond it onto the cap

    also make sure you cut it at the correct hight

    Brett has a 1.6 like mine. AFAIK it was a case of taking the old one off and filing down and around the lugs to fit the new one, then apply some bonding adhesive like that stinky stuff (cant remember what its called )
