ssia!

I was filling up gas today...I opened the fuel door, heard a crunch, and then I saw the fuel door hanging limply from the side of the car. I put the cap back on, and sorta wedged the fuel door in place, and it currently sits kinda cockeyed.

What are my options? Are junkyard fuel doors any good? Is it worth getting one of those billet fuel doors that all the ******* jocks put on their jacked-up Chevy pickups? Is there a super-clean replacement from a comparable car?

White!

Unless there are different shades of white :D

But, Chrysler Stone White isn't too hard to replicate.

Just how hard is it to remove a fuel door?

There are two torx head bolts visible on the left when you open the door. Remove them, then the assembly will come out.

For future reference, if the fuel door hinge gets stiff, lube it with some spray lithium grease to free it up and prevent it breaking off.

Was your hinge binding up, or was the hinge still free to move and the door just corroded off?

It felt just fine to me...opened and closed nicely. It honestly feels now like the hinge corroded off; the door is fine.
