S1 petrol cap

Post by BiggestNizzy » Sun Aug 29, 2021 9:57 am

Anyone know how to get it off when the locking mechanism has seized up?

I understand you can't get replacements so I don't want to get medieval if I can help it.

Squirt GT85 or silicon spray into the key slot and let it soak?

Otherwise one to ask Craig. There will be a method !

You can replace the guts. Its the aluminium that you can't get.
