Civic coupe vti 1999.
I have just received my replacement filler cap off eBay and it does fit!
However I noticed some white stuff around a bit the outer part of the rubber seal and thought it was dirt. Trying to remove it with some tissue the whole seal came off then I realised it’s actually underlying glue which wasn’t covered by the seal. The seal coming off so easily shows it was a poor manufacturing job I guess.
Anyway im tired of this filler cap issue. Right now to remove the seal u really need to poke with your nails so I could just at least temporarily use car by manually put seal into place and every time I remove the cap just ensure the rubber is still in place as it’s not moving easily even without glue.
I could also dab a little bit of super glue(?) Where existing glue is.
What do you recommenced?If the existing or super glue sticks out a little either side of the rubber will that matter as the original glue did will that matter in which case I’ll need to clean and glue until I get it right?
I imagine I could send it back but would rather avoid it. They may also argue I shouldn’t have picked at the visible glue but of course I would how do I know of it is dirt that just needed picking out or glue. Plus the glue job was obviously poor to begin with.
