Fuel Filler Spring

Anyone ever broken the spring on the door of the Fuel Filler? Some how it caught on a small gap in the Gas Nozzle and the two were stuck together for a bit at the pump.

Before i take it apart, I'd figure to ask. I am guessing i will need to replace some bits when i put this apart too.

Unless you have a truck that you are hoping wins "Best in Show" I wouldn't bother with it. What is the purpose of that little door anyways?

I will have to take it out to remove the door. I dont want it just to fall into the tank.

Different car but same COO and, therefore, culture of quality...

On what was probably my 10th fill up ever on my Elise, the little spring flap caught the pump nozzle and fell in despite my best efforts when trying to free the nozzle. That was 8 years and 11k miles ago...don't worry about it. Can't see how it would ever block a modern type of fuel pickup.
