So, the first time I opened the fuel door on my new X, the damn tension spring popped loose. I looked at it and can't figure out for the life of me how the thing is supposed to mount. Now the fuel door just kind of flops around like a skin tag on a fat European tourist. Anyone know how this thing mounts, so I don't have to swing by the Stealer for something this piddly?

I like the magnet idea, and that's what I'll likely do. Obviously, this is pretty common and likely to happen again, so screw the clip. I don't need no stinkin' clip.

I unbolted my hinge from the body. With the door with the hinge in hand I reinstalled the clip. It was easy that e=way and didn't have to try to not scratch the paint.
