Alfa Romeo 147

Mooney 147 Fuel Cap

Think mines bust, it just sits there and isnt a tight seal and wont lock. Will I possibly be losing fuel through vapour with it like this??

Re: 147 Fuel Cap

Sounds daft but did you try turning the lock anticlockwise first?

Re: 147 Fuel Cap

It took me about two weeks to figure out how exactly it works.....I can now put it on blindfolded. So, if the car is new to you, keep on trying and it will lock.

If it is broken however, its a different story.....

Re: 147 Fuel Cap

I`v had mine 18months & still get it wrong at times.When replacing cap,press cap firmly in place,turn clockwise `till you hear the cap clicking,(ratchet effect) then turn key clockwise.That hopefully should do it.
