    Fuel Door Came Apart Today

    Today I was messing with the rubber gasket on the fuel door and the whole thing came apart in 3 pieces (I was like WTF). Has anyone had this happen to them? It appears that the inner door is 3M taped to the outer door, and the rubber seal just 'sits' there in the groove. I am thinking about glueing it together with epoxy or something. Any ideas/experience with this?

    I need to replace the rubber gasket as it is a little F-ed up from the origional owner. Any idea where to get this little part?

    I'd just order a new one from www.gmpartshouse.com. If you can't find it in their online catalog, send an email to Gene Culley at gculley@gmpartshouse.com and ask him for the part number - include your VIN in your email - he'll get back to you pretty quick with the actual part number to enter online.

    That's exactly what I needed! They have only the rubber seal for like $7.50! I can just epoxy the door back together and all is good! Thanks again for your help! Too bad you are not in Michigan or I would buy you a beer man!
