    Question Fuel Filler Cap

    Since i bought my astra (about a month ago) whenever i lock the doors i have to hold the cap in for it to lock properly. it also tends to blow open in the wind. i thought it was because the 'return spring' was knackered or something so i took the cap off only to find there is no spring.

    Does anybody know how i can fix this or will i need a replacement unit??

    thanx

    Which Astra ? 3,4,5 ?

    Sounds like the hinge is not right?
    It should hold closed without having to 'lock it'.....look to see if the catch is broken...
