Hi, The door/flap which is opened to reveal the petrol cap on my Ford focus (55 reg.) is broken- it has snapped at the hinge. I have bought a replacment( Part number 4M51-A27936-AF) but am unsure of how to fit it. Any help would be great!

NO DON'T!!!!!!!!!!! You'll blow it up! Go to someone like Forddirect who will get you the fan without changing the rad. What is cheaper, a radiator from a scrappies, or a new engine? They are set up for a reason, not for fun. Good Luck.

I have a Holden Barina Hatch 2012 model.

I think the system on that car enables you to open the petrol flap once the drivers door is unlocked (either by pulling the cap open or pressing on the flap).

1. Lock the car using the central locking.
2. Insert the key on the drivers door, turn it once and unlock it. Open the door to check you have unlocked it. Then turn the key in the lock again as if you were unlocking it a 2nd time.
3. Now open the petrol flap as the lock should have released.

Gas cap door won't spring open. Thanks for any help...

there is a broken spring / missing spring at the door hinge
it requires 2 people to get it open
one to keep the button pressed or cable pulled and the other to use fingers or maybe a flat bar of some sort to force the flap open
if you have the time it may be accessible from inside the boot behind the trim where you can undo some screws to free the latch mechanism so that the flap catch can come free of the latch tongue
springs are cheap and easily fitted as they break on a regular basis.

How to open petrol cap

you may have to get into the boot and remove any trim to the filler tube area. This will give you access to the flap lock system that holds the door closed . If there is a solenoid there you may be able to manually pull the rod that releases the flap lock or move the whole thing to let the flap open
