It just unbolts, go inside the trunk and pull back the liner to expose the nuts.

SOURCE: Fuel tank door hinge

Found on-line at other sites.


[Removing/Repairing Gas Filler Door Hinge: Tip from Bill Peyton]   The gas door hinge will break if pushed forward.  This is usually done by moving around the car with the door open, or by curious children.  The repair job can be done completely from the exterior. 
 
The black plastic hinge is held in place by four plastic rods.  When pushed through the body of the car, they expand four rubber sleeves located on the interior, thereby holding the whole thing in place. 
Remove as follows: 
Open the door, and using a small punch, push the four plastic rods through to the interior of the car.  The door will now come out.  Note the position of the spring and the hinge.  Remove the spring from the old hinge, and either cut or pry our the old hinge.  This is a black plastic piece. 
The ends of the new hinge are tapered to make it easier to insert into the gas door.  Clip the spring back into place. 
Now for the hard part.  You will see on the new hinge four plastic rods.  These are held onto the hinge by four small connections, all molded into a single piece.  On the other side of the hinge are four plastic “flowers” split into four pieces.  You will need to push the plastic rods through the “flowers”, once the “flowers” are pushed through to the interior of the car.   Since the rods are not free floating, they tend to break off and fly away unless you hit them squarely.  If this happens, put a little taper in the ends, place them back in the hold, and push them through.  A punch and a hammer will be essential.  Alternatively, you can break the rods off while the piece is off the car, insert them manually, and drive them in again with the punch.

SOURCE: Broken spring on the gas fuel tank door on Toyota ''Camry'' 1998

Go to your nearest Toyota dealer. Purchase this part number: 77360-22020; approx 4 dollars.

Open the fuel door. Being careful, remove the leftover plastic that is hooked by the door hinge. Insert the new spring assembly under the slot, and press it in until it clicks into place. Very easy to do.
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: 2001 grand prix..fuel door hinge is broken.how do

I just fixed mine the other day. Take off all the screws you see inside the fuel door (You will need a #15 torx screwdriver and a small socket set). Then you have to drill out the 2 rivets (one on top, and one below the hinge.

You should be able to remove the door and hinge assembly now.

I think you will find that the hinge pins have rusted out. I replace mine with the shafts of drill bits. You will not be able to cut the drill bits, but if you put them in a vice you can break them off at the appropriate length with a hammer, just watch your eyes :-)

Then re-install, and re-rivet.

If you have any questions e-mail me rstbc at hotmail.

Cheers

I have a 2001 Toyota Celica.the problem is the door lock and fuel gauge shows empty n warning lights always on even when its full.i have checked all the fuse and even replace the relay still it didnt fix...


For the Fuel Gauge problem: try knocking on your fuel tank a few times. Give it a few good bangs, sometimes this loosens the fuel pump lever that can sometimes get stuck. This is very common with older model vehicles. To tackle the door lock you will need to get behind the door panel. its not difficult; just take your time.

The plastic/ rubber door hinge is broken and the driver side door will open wider than it should. How do I remove the interior door panel and replace the rubber door hinge part.


Hello. Please let me assist you.

Your door has a broken 'door check', the metal box that holds the door check has a broken weld.

What I would do if I were you:

Take your vehicle to your local Toyota dealership.
Toyota is aware of this issue, and has issued a repair procedure.

Toyota will repair the vehicle at NO COST to you.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Fuel door on my 1993 toyota camry won't open when I pull the leve


Get someone to help you. Have them pull up on the handle, whilst you pry open the door with a credit card, or something thin and plastic. Pull open the fuel door. Look to see if there is a bent piece of metal above the hinge. This is the "spring" that pops the fuel door open. If it is not there, it has broken, and needs to be replaced. About 3 dollars at a Toyota Dealer.

2003 Celica GTS fuel door problem!!!


I had the same problem and I drilled out the rivets...it does work after giving it a little time. You will be able to drill all the way through the rivet and then pull it out. You'll have to order a new hinge or door and reinstall the rivets. Can go to Harbor Freight Tools and get a rivet tool with rivets if you don't have one. They're not expensive.
