Petrol cap lock removal

After my car was broken into I bought a complete lock set from FIAT. Comprising of all the lock cylinders Now, having done all of the locks I have become stuck as to how to remove the lock cylinder from the petrol cap I've had a search and couldnt find anything..
Also, I have a lock for my glove box, but my origional glove box doesnt have a lock .

Any help would be super

I've never ever been able to remove the lock from the cap- you will need to get a new cap and then just put the lock into it.

just pop to the fiat parts section at the dealer and get a new cap, can't think of any other way of doing it. Shouldn't be over a tenner, but you never know.

Re: Petrol cap lock removal

prize the black inner part of the cap from the outer part, its only clipped together, you can then quickly change the barrel and clip both parts back together. just note you may need a bit of force to get the parts apart, and they sometimes shatter.
