Now that the the lock is seated, and the key is in the lock, its not turning any direction at all though it was working fine initially. Glad I didn't stick on the refill neck. If I don't get it working right I hope a locksmith can at least surgically get my key back out, damn the cap!

Rock Auto has it for $15.42, but they only charge a couple dollars for shipping. So, you'll likely only spend about $18 or less for the total price.

If this link doesn't take you straight to it, just search part number GT344.

Try to wiggle the key up and down it sounds like a tumbler wasn't quite right.

or I don't know if its possible, but did you put the sleeve on backward?
Like I said I don't even know if its possible for it to go on backwards, but looking back through the pics there is a notch on one end and it may have locked onto the brass keeper...
I would try to turn the key CCW while tapping the cap on a table maybe that will jar the key/ tumbler/sleeve free.

If the tumblers are wrong or the sleeve is backwards you might as well count on the cap needing to be replaced
Sorry I was at work 14 hours today no time to respond to PM's

Believe it or not I just now got the whole thing to come back out, lock and all. Once I did that the key came came out of the lock. The brass locking tab is slight bent but that can put easily bent back into shape. Also the lock does work with the key now that it's out again. I don't know what's going on but I'm open.

Thanks all and got mine working! Don't know what was going on but I lucked out in being able to pull the lock back out and re-seating it. Works perfectly and now to put it in place of the original none locking cap.

Wish the tether wasn't so dang hard! The one on the car came off, how I don't know but there is something preventing me from using the new one.
Anyone get past this obstacle yet?

just did mine, easy as pie!

got my cap from rock auto, took about 10 minutes to key the lock, and i sprayed it lightly with super lube before inserting into the cap, works perfect.

took the filler door off as described, needle nose popped out the old tether, and new tether snapped right back in, perfect write up, thanks.

just did mine, followed the pictures but took me some time to figure out both R and L side used the same key number, even though the cap came with 4 sets for each side. anyway, worked like a charm, excellent directions from posts 1 and 20.

Thanks for the DIY, just coded my gas cap. Your step by step pictures made it very easy! This was on a 2013 so it definitely works on 2013 models.

hey guys

i was on my car, and now i am no more sure, then the gas cap with the key, is ok on my zl1. the white piece on the gas cap, this, which go inside the gas insert is longer then the stock one.

the key lock woks fine, I am not reliably whether the catch am close.

anybody knows if the gas inserts are different between ss and zl1 ?

I personally can't say but would wonder why they would change the threading part that I think you're referring to which goes into goose neck. Just seems odd to change that over all over models, SS/RS/LS. Did you place both caps side by side to make a comparison?

Ordered my locking gas cap right before the holidays and after a long vacation, I just got around to installing it. Thanks for the clear installation instructions which make it an easy install!
