    Default Sticky Fuel Cap (Vec-B)

    Twice this has happened reently.

    Went to re-fuel the wife car only to find the fuel cap locked closed, pressed the lock\un-lock buttons a few times and it then opened.

    Tonight it would not open, so I had to manually pull the pin back.

    Has anyone else had this problem ?

    Yep, thats how I managed to open it to put more fuel in.

    I'll see if it's covered on the warranty, if not, looks like I'll be sitting in the boot for an hour or two.
