DIY: Gas door clicker repair

Quick easy fix for you. If your fuel door won't stay clicked in, you can remove this little plastic clicker box and fix it.

See the little metal pin? Just install the opposite way it was. There are two plastic rails for it to move in, left side and right side. One side will be worn out, but the other side is brand new and ready for another 12 years of service.

Easy 10 minute fix.
