The fuel filler flap was damaged when someone stole diesel from my car, although the flap is intact, the hinge seems to be very loose as if it is broken.
Is it possible to have the hinge assembly replaced.
Also, is it possible for someone to syphon fuel from the S Max, there did seem to be diesel on the ground in that area as if it had been spilt..
I have no complaints about my S Max but I won't be very happy if I know that my fuel can be nicked so easily!

Have something to contribute?

Same has happened to me but no fuel has been taken. The flap floats in the breeze and is stuck in place with tape. Is it easy to replace/repair??

Doesn't the S-Max have the easy fuel system i.e. nothing but the correct fuel nozzle will open the cap
