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

The door to the fuel tank doesn't open when I pull the lever. How do I open it?


the door will not open probably because the spring at the door hinge is broken or missing
try removing the trim in the boot and you will see wherr the cable is for the lock mechanism, It is either screwed in but I am thinking that it will be held in by plastic clip../ Press the edges of the plastic together and push the mechanism into the fuel compartment. This will allow the catch to move around . have some one hold the lever up and use your fingers or a flat bladed screwdriver ( gently so as not to damage the paint) pry open the door. There should be a "z" shaped flat spring around the hinge that flips open the door when you pull the lever.
The part will be available from toyota only and if mitsubishi is any gauge around $3-$5.00

I have 2000 avalon. When my battery was dead, one door window was open. After having jump start, the window cannot be closed. And other door windows cannot be open either.


The doors/windows need to be re-programmed. Take your car to your Toyota service center and they will re-program the doors/windows.

My Toyota Avalon passenger door makes a clicking noise when opening or closing. What could cause this?


if the click happens when the door is almost completely open then there is an over center cam that latches the door open so it doesnt just swing back at you .. the cam is visible near or on the door hinges ... if there is any loosness in the pivot pin then it will snap each time you go over the latch point .. heavy greese on its pivot pin might quiet it down .. if the click happens just as the door is opened then make sure the door front edge is not hitting the fender edge. of course lube the hinges and make sure they are not loose ...

The drivers side window switch will not control the passengers window, however the passenger side window switch does control the window.


You will either have a broken wire in the door hinge area or either switch can be bad it depends on where the ground has been lost swap the rear door switch just to make sure other than that you realy need to know the schematic of the system to determine who is at fault

Fuel filler door opener


In my case, I found that it's because there's a clip spring on the hinge of the fuel door that went missing, that's why when I pulled the tab inside of the car, even though that works, the fuel door won't "pop" open, so I do have to jam a pen under the tab, and use my finger to pry it open. I suspect once I have the time to go the dealer and get the spring back on, everything should be fine.
