The door to the gas tank (fuel filler lid is the technical term I guess) is hanging open and unsecured, it looks like the plastic peg which would normally hold it in place has broken off.

The dealer told me the only option is to replace the entire fuel door mechanism (about $300 parts & labor) instead of just replacing the 1/2 inch long or so piece of plastic in question.

Anyone else had experience with this issue? Is the little plastic piece really unavailable without the entire mechanism?

Can anyone suggest a temporary way to rig up something to hold the fuel door closed until the dealer gets the part in and I have time to take the car in? (about another week or so).

Thanks very much!
