Today, I bought a replacement fuel cap strap from IPD for my '07 V70 T5 FWD at 296,000mi. (A zip tie re-connecting the two halves of the broken zig-zag strap just couldn't keep the rubber from slipping out of the tie's grip, no matter how tight.) Before ordering, one must measure the inside diameter of the cap end of the strap, but I couldn't get it off. I ended up prying the ring proud of the cap and cutting it with wire nippers to get it off. At least it looks as though it'll be easy to slide the new one back on. I had them toss in a cap seal, too.

Replaced mine with oem from the dealer recently. It was as you suggest a bitch to get off but the new one slipped on easy peasy.
