Gas cap repair Kit. Ever lose your gas cap rotating door? One day it was there and the next day gone! These gas cap doors have a small post integral to the casting that have a small spring and washer installed over it. At the end of this post the manufacturer simply peened over the, fragile, Zamac casting to hold everything together. Eventually, through use, this peened area will break and the door will no longer be held tightly in position. Poor little doors will then vibrate off and become road kill.
No worries or need to throw away your door-less gas cap or even buy a new original gas cap one(MUCHO DINERO). Here is a great little kit! Contents include: One replacement door, door rubber weather-strip, spring to adjust the door tension, washer, set screw, miniature bottle of Loc-Tite for the set screw to keep the screw from ever backing out and the main sealing gasket for sealing against the end of the filler neck tube.
Includes a simple, clear instruction sheet.
Note: There were three different gas caps offered by Nissan.(SEE PHOTOS 5 & 6 Where A / B / C front and back are shown)The door and the main body of the gas cap on the earliest variant, #A, is very different from #B and #C. Our kit # A & B uses the late door modified to fit the very early cap bodies.
The cosmetic body of the gas cap and door on variants #B and #C are the same, the mechanism being the only differences. The sealing gasket for A is cork & for B & C are rubber.
Please be sure to order the correct kit.
Kit #C is for the latest and last version of the gas cap offered by Nissan. Part number 17251-25500 now long out of production.
