[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.
