147 rattling petrol cap???

Daft question, but does everyones 147 petrol cap feel really loose and rattles around, even when its locked? I have been trying to track down a rattle for ages that I was convinced was in the rear hatch but cannot find it. However the petrol cap seems really loose and I can easily make it rattle about. Anyone any idea how much a new one would be and whether its possible to change the locks over?? Going to tap over the cap and see if it cures the problem!

If it's the petrol cap door that has the rattle,try adjusting the lock by the 2 bolts that holds it closed.
