    Need Some Advice Please!!!

    Hi all,

    Bit of a daft question here but it is annoying me:

    I have recently bought a Vauxhall Astra 1.8 sri (its 57 plate) Heres my problem, i have left it parked at airport parking whilst i go on holiday and for some reason i think i may have left petrol door open! I know for a fact that the main doors are locked as i checked them.

    What i would like to know is: Will the main doors lock if the petrol door is open or do you require the petrol door to be closed to operate the central locking?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    The petrol locking bolt operates when the central locking is put on.
    The bolt shoots thro the hole on the flap,and holds it ,if the flap is left
    "open" the bolt will still operate,but with no flap to go into ,will remain open.
    Just hope no one sees it,althought it is difficult to drain petrol off thro the filler neck,or hope someone sees it and pushes it too,which is more likely.
