Gas Filler Door Misalignment

Has anybody noticed if their door isn't centered? I'm curious to see if it could be repositioned.

Yea just tell the dealer to fix it. It's covered under the bumper to bumper warranty portion.

IF it's fixable. If there is no factory provision to adjust it, they would probably say "no can do", or they would get another gas door, if that's the problem. I'd rather not do that as then I would have possible paint issues.

Sometimes you have to decide if the fix is going to be worse than the problem.

I bet you can center it yourself... just move it with the palm of your hand when it is closed... it moves around

Can you get a shot with the door open so I/we could see the hinge ? The paint looks good why you got the camera out take some of that huffer sticking out of your 69, that thing looks huge.

HA-HA!! Looks like my avitar fooled ya! It's actually a 1/18 scale Muscle Machine with a pasted pic of me! It's easy to see how crude it is when the pic is bigger.

Soon as my wife gets back, I'll try to get good shot of the hinge. I haven't looked at it closely yet. If it looks possible, I think I will attempt to adjust it. I really don't want the dealer messing with such a small problem. I'll save them for the big stuff, like my stripes misalignment!

Is your gas door a different color under lights at night, say at a parking lot?
