  1. Make sure the fuel fill door closes and latches without contact or interference from the mis-fuel inhibit device and surrounding area.
  2. Make sure the fuel fill door release works correctly when using the fuel fill door release button. If the fuel fill door still sticks out more than 1 mm, check the fuel filler adapter for broken clips or mis-installation. If the adapter is OK, do normal troubleshooting.
