Anyone Now How to Remove Gas Cap Cover

Hello,

Does anyone know how to remove the gas cap cover from a Lotus Evora? I need to take in for a minor paint repair.

Thanks!

And when I say the gas cap cover, I mean the circle door that opens that reveals the gas cap. Accidently wacked it with with a gas nozzle and need to remove to have it repaired.

If it helps, I have a diagram of how the gas assembly goes together. If you want it, PM me your email address and I can email it to you.

I'm not sure how to just remove the filler door.
But, if worse comes to worst, this is for overall Fuel filler bowl removal:

-- Open fuel filler flap.
-- Remove right hand rear wheelarch liner.
-- Disconnect harness connector from solenoid.
-- Unclip drain tube from retain clips pressed into chassis.
-- Remove fuel filler cap.
-- Pull down fuel filler neck grommet from the base of the bowl assembly.
-- Press in the 3 moulded retaining lugs that located the bowl assembly to the rear clamshell.
-- Carefully rotate the bowl assembly and tilt to withdraw from clamshell.

Thanks Guys. I found that there was just a small tab that holds it on. It popped right off.

For future reference for the rest of us, where is the tab ? And, what did you do to "pop it off" ?
