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!

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 never noticed that when I installed mine.
But I just went out and looked and yes on the locking cap, the white threaded part is about 8MM longer than the stock one.
I have not had any issues yet.

Great post!

Any idea if the many left over tumblers are useful to a locksmith?

Just got done with mine. Haven't put it on the car yet. Working nights, time for bed. Once I figured it out with your help it was easy. Just got to make sure to use the tumblers that fit flush on both sides and the sleeve slides on smoothly. Hardest part was seating the brass retainer. Had to persuade it with channel locks. Works good though. Good investment as a deterent from possible vandals.

Bought it and coded it a couple weeks ago. Thanks to your write up, it was really easy

Installed it today, took 2 minutes with clicking out the fuel door and needle-nose pliers to unrelease the old strap.

Great to see so many people having good success with the coding.
It is pretty intimidating when you first lay out all those pieces, but as you all have seen it's pretty easy.
Glad I could contribute something to this great site.

Excellent write up. Put me on the list of people this helped. Thank you.

Not only did I verify the part number with the dealer, the write up was way better than the instructions that came with the cap.

Amazon Prime is so worth the investment. Saved a bunch on shipping!

Just started my free trial with Amazon Prime, so I didn't get nailed with S&H. Also nabbed the last cap on Amazon

I'm curious as to why Amazon said this part does not fit your car though? I went through the drop down menus and received this message for some reason? Maybe because it is a 2013

If I remember correct the dealer told me it was for Exports only. I told them I will take my chances.

"Technically" yes, they only sell it to exports - but all camaros have the gas threading on their fuel nozzle. So it works on ours too.

Why is it the inside of my cap looks different than the OP's? The actual locking mechanism has 2 round prongs, but the inside of my cap does not have the 2 openings for it? Before I set this in, I want to make sure some of you guys have a cap that looks like this. Mine is an AC delco btw.

Yeah something there does not look right.
put the tumbler assy in it and see if it goes in all the way.. As long as you don't install the brass keeper it will come back out.
I think you may have a defective one.

It's actually missing the plastic piece with the 2 open holes for the locking mechanism to pop into. Now it's a matter of who to contact? Ac Delco, Amazon

This Write-Up was a GREAT help. If you find like i did that you cannot instal the cylinder in the cap. You didn't heed this instruction. "Slide the sleeve (tab end first) over the cylinder. If it stops at the tumbler it is the wrong one". I had to pull the brass keeper back out using pliers and install the sleeve correctly. Also had to use another spring for the brass keeper, since that was slightly mangled pulling the keeper out. Everything is fine now just need to install on the car.

THANKS
