Default Can someone post clean-up steps or part#?

I took off the part and sprayed it with some silicone. Still doesn't work.

Can someone post what exactly they did to clean it?

Or:

Would someone kindly post a part #. I can't seem to locate it.

Thanks.

I pulled it out over the Summer and inspected it and lubed it a bit with a little white grease. Hopefully it won't freeze up again this Winter.

The actuator has two push pins holding it in place. They ara accessible from inside the fuel door. You can't get to the actuator from inside the trunk.

I used a small screwdriver to pry the pins out. Then the whole thing comes out through the fuel door.

Reinstallation is the reverse of the removal.

Cheers...
inside your trunk to the left.

Do they all have this? I'm thinking mine doesn't but I can't imagine that the lower trim levels would have an option like this that my SSEi doesn't...but maybe that'* how it is??

Quick way to check would be to lock your doors and see if you can open your gas door. or just look inside the door for the actuator...

if you open your gas door, there is tab with a square hole in it that gets locked by the actuator.

the acuator is the black thing seen here:

I've got one as well, but it takes even worse pictures in low light than my digi-cam does...
