This is a DIY on removing the fuel door on a GC. Pretty straight forward. Like most things it look intimidating at first but once you take it off once and see how it was put in it'll be easy from then on out.

1. When you open the door, you'll see 4 10mm bolts around the filler neck, remove those and then remove the ring around the filler neck that the bolts were holding in place. Also remove the small ring around the fuel door release latch on the right.

2. Next you are gonna have to pull the shroud out. NOTE: The shroud is ONE big piece that the fuel door is connected to. When you pull on the shroud, the shroud AND the fuel door will come out as one.

Now the shroud is held in by 4 clips (2 pictured). 2 on top and 2 on the bottom.


To undo the clips you have to pull at an angle. I used the corner to the right of the filler as a hand grip and pulled out and down. This dislodged the 2 top clips. Once you have dislodged at least 2 clips start working the rubber hole opening around the filler neck out as it will start to hang as you pull. Also do the same for the release latch on the right (it just presses in to get it out of its hole).

Once you get the filler neck out of its hole you should be able to pull the whole assembly out.


3. To remove the fuel door from the shroud just take a flat head and lift up the tab here and it will come right out


Viola! Big thanks to Snoopy for the pointers.

This is a pretty simple DIY, since one of the clips that hold the fuel cap to the door snapped off for some reason on mine (I'm not sure if it happened before I bought the car) it looks like an easy thing to take out and do something with it.

Speaking of the cap holder breaking, has anybody else's 13 or older done that?

Genuine question:

What is the purpose/benefit of doing this? Is it just an aesthetic thing?

Bump! Thanks for this write up.

Getting something on my car painted by a body shop, and this is an easy way for them to color match my car without needing to leave my car there.

I have a 2014 Sonata that the gas door would not open on & the pull string in the trunk wouldn't get it open either. I hear the switch moving but the pin isn't contracting. So I pried it open & broke the pin that holds the door shut.

How far to the side does the gap reach? Can a PDR specialist get in from there to fix a dent on the quarter panel body line near the rear window?

Or is that area completely sealed?

I doubt it but I don't remember how far inside it goes.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but any easy way or tips to pull the shroud out? I have tried for the last hour and cant get the damn thing out. I've pulled on it, used a sock and flathead to try to pry it off...no luck. And yes, all 4 bolts removed, neck filler cover removed and the small door release ring was removed.

A flathead should help. I think getting the top or bottom loose 1st is easier than trying to get one side or the other. Like the description under the 1st pick

Thank you! You saved me a lots of time in replacing the fuel door lock actuator on my 2012 Coupe. In less than one hour had the task done and saved big!
