Gas cap pulled away from body panel

Hey Guys,

Unfortunately don't have a picture as I live in NYC and my dad has the 90 down in FL (he is not tech savvy enough to email me a picture). From his description, it seems that the gas cap and the portion of the fuel filler it attaches to has pulled away from the body. The rubber gasket that holds the tube to the body has lost its adhesive and if he tries to push it back to the body, it will not stay. Does not effect the function at all, but he is looking for a fix. Is there an adhesive that you guys recommend, or would I need to replace the part (part number?)? I will be home in 3 weeks for thanksgiving and can take a picture if my description above was not helpful.

Any help is greatly appreciated as always.

Thanks,

Andy

Mine doesn't have adhesive so my guess is he just isn't pushing the gasket in all the way. Once the body is in properly the groove it won't come out. I recommend a nice warm day and lather it in soapy water. You can reach from underneath/behind to help work the seal in as well.

If the whole assembly is pushing out, he should look underneath and see why just in case something is amiss there, but it sounds like the gasket/seal just needs to get put back in.

hth,
charles

Yeah, there's no glue there, but the seal is hard to get in. In fact, if it came out, it makes me wonder if the back of the grommet tore off. The whole situation is odd though, since the assembly doesn't move around.

Spoke with my dad, the rubber gasket that held the gasket in place had totally dried out and crumbled. Does anyone know if there is a replacement for this piece?
