    Angry Irmscher fuel cap caover has bent my cap!

    I just wanted to see if anyone else has fitted an irmsher fuel cap to their coupe and had it straighten out the natural curve to the fuel cover? The metal and the adhesve are so strong that it has effectively broken the seal that the cover creates. Its been on there 6 months and i only noticed it a few weeks ago.

    Any ideas on how to sort it?

    Its because the doors are only plastic, i'm guessing the adhesive has heated the door and bent it

    This happened to mine, i noticed it as i was buying it from my local Vaux dealer and as part of the "deal" i told him to remove the Irmy Petrol Cap Cover because they look crap (just my opinion) but they had to replace the whole fuel cap to get it to seal properly again!

    Mine still looks perfect but then again I noticed the curve of the cap beforehand and bent the Irmy cover to match BEFORE I stuck it on.

    I didn't think Irmsher would be that stupid to make such a stupid bloody product and not tell you the potential seal breaking qualities of the cap.
