Default Gas Tank Cover Yanked Off! "92/900

A friend (not one of my smarter ones) borrowed my Saab. He could not find the gas tank lever release, so instead he pulled the gas tank cover off!! The whole thing came off, how do I fix this? Thanks!

I didn't know saabs had a gas tank release. Might need to get a new cover and bolt it back on.

Default Gas Tank Cover Yanked Off! "92/900

Just to clarify; the person could not locate the gas tank lever release (located to the left of the driver's side seat). This is the mechanism that causes the Gas Tank Cover/Door to pop open so you can access the Gas Cap/Cover.

I think I need to find a used part from a salvage yard.

My '92 900 doesn't have a gas cap release- you just open the little door and unscrew the cap... I'm thinking it's an aftermarket thing. Or maybe different models have different covers?????

That's a thought, perhaps I have not been driving a Saab afterall?

Yes, this car has a release to open the Gas Tank Cover so you can access the gas cap. I spoke with my mechanic, it requires a new/salvaged part since the cover was cracked completely off.

Lesson Learned:

Friends don't let friends who are non-Saab drivers drive their Saab.

Half the time they can't find where the key goes anyway !

He said '92 900 in the first post. But I've never seen a lever for the fuel tank on a C900 either. We did have a thread a while back with a bloke who was convinced he had a 1989 900, and kept saying how the SID was fading, the parking brake alarm went bing bong and he had a low coolant warning. Despite around 40 people telling him it was a GM900 he wasn't having it I'm just wondering, in the nicest possible way, whether this might be similar and that there is some confusion over the year of the car.
