Fuel filler door won't close

Postby ctb » Thu Jan 07, 2021 5:49 pm

My wife's 1990 CRX Si (44,959 original miles) fuel filler door opens fine but won't close unless I pull up on the fuel filler release lever and then push on the door to close it. I have photos but the file size is too large to allow posting.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

It may be time to lubricate the release tab by the door. That's where I would start since it sounds like the popper is not going back into place to allow it to close.

The pre formed metal on the inside of the filler door could have gotten bent just enough to cause this issue. Work with it and bend it slightly to adjust.
