Broken filler cap

When I was filling my stilo with petrol yesterday I pushed the fuel cap cover in as usual and the whole thing fell off leaving a big hole in the side of the car. The plastic had snapped and the retaining pin fell out. I always thought it felt very cheap, has anyone else ever had this problem? Its an 04 3dr.

Re: Broken filler cap

Had the problem on an 02(52) model but the replacement, under warranty, was for more substantial and I imagine this is what you already had. Get it replaced under warranty.

Common problem,might take awhile though as dealer has to get flap painted.
