Broken fuel filler flap

1754 3
Unbelievablly drove away with fuel hose still in the filler. (Blush) Wondering if replacing the filler flap is a D.I.Y. job. I see a part listed, but can't tell if that's all that's needed:
The part is "Cover, Flap module seal #17678-TLA-A03


Anyone had this issue or know what's involved?

Ouch. First time I have heard this one.

Are you sure that is the only part damaged?

I ask because if anything is not 100% with these capless fuel ports.. you probably will start getting emission system failure alerts. This is probably something best repaired by a dealer.

Thanks for your reply. I have been driving it for a couple of months with the broken piece duct taped in place with not warning alerts. I first used JB weld to repair it , but that failed after a couple of weeks.

Got it... so sounds like you just need to replace that part then. We have some good mechanics in the forum, so I bet one of them stops by and gives some advice on replacement.

AND..... (y) (y) for duct tape! :D
