2016 C4 Picasso Grand Fuel Door ?

Post by Uncle Tom Cobley »

The fuel door on my 2016 Picasso Grand is sticking and not opening properly and I need to pull it out with my fingers but it takes some strength.
Has anybody else had this problem or indeed know the fix ?

There was a known issue on models earlier to yours where the fuel filler neck assembly caused the fuel flap to stick making it difficult to open or close. This was revised with a replacement part from models built from 16 December 2015. Yours was built 18 January 2016, so should have the new assembly..... bit with only a month difference between the modification I suppose it's possible that you have the old assembly.

The only other thing I can think of apart from a blockage or damage, is the fuel flap actuator.

Thanks Marc .
I think I will pop it into the chaps who look after my car.
You don’t happen to know if there was a recall for this problem by any chance ?

OK .. All fixed.
Followed a YT vid with same problem on a VW Golf, simply filed down a little on the plastic catch and put a good smear of vasoline on everything and Bobs yer uncle !
