The fuel filler cap is not opening when I operate the lever on the floor. Possible broken cable. Has anyone ever changed one. It is a Mk2 1.8 verona

These are common for the filler flap to stick on the seal, get someone to gently pull on the flap as you operate the lever, this should open. Then lubricate with some WD40 around the mating seal and jobs done.
