Fuel filler surround.

Post by HPFirenza » Sat 14 Jan, 2017 12:03

The fuel filler rubber surround (or tank filler pot)with the small drain hole at the bottom where any excess petrol seeps out has perished on my Z. I have looked on the TIS and this part is not available (no part number either). I presume that I would have to get a replacement off a scrap car. Has anybody removed or fitted one of these and if so what is involved (can I do it myself). Can it be fitted without removing the rear wing? Anyone have a spare?

Just looked this up for my car (01/99 M44 1.9) and I suspect that it is part #18 on this diagram, described as Tank filler pot:

Bodywork > Side panel/tail trim

Current price £33.78 from Rybrook Warwick.

Parts usage show that this is for the narrow-body cars only, so you will need to do another search for widebody or facelift cars.

Thanks Robert. Mine is a narrow body so that's the right part. Just need to know how easy it is too fit.

I don't know how expensive or cheap they are brand new but andy aka spursfaninacoupe will probably have a 2nd hand one and will be able to tell you how easy they are to replace - send him a PM

I think this is a rear wing off job, the wing is bolted so no big issue there but it is quite a task.
