Hi, on my mom's 04 XC70, the fuel door does not stay shut and opens up freely. I've tried locking and unlocking the car but no success. I'm thinking maybe the spring is broken. Any ideas on what I can do or what part i need to purchase? Thanks

Re: Fuel door broken (bpray9223)

I recently had the plastic spring hinge part break on my car, and the door wouldn't stay shut, however if the door was shut and you locked the car, it would still lock.<p>I bought a new hinge spring assembly from dealer. To remove the old one, there are small plastic pins on the hinge. These are basically plastic rivets. I had to punch the little plastic pins in to remove the hinge assembly.<p>Be careful though...
