If you only need the small plastic arm that goes on the end of the lock cylinder (which latches the fuel door closed), then check out this link:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27563

I downloaded the files and had a local company print them on their 3D printer. I haven't assembled it yet. I probably won't get to it for another few weeks but once I do, I'll post up a review here.

If you decide to go the same route and can't find a local 3D printer, just let me know and I'll put you in contact with the company that I used. They can print the part and mail it to you for a very reasonable fee (I paid $10).

Why not post up the link, I am nowhere near a facility with a 3D printer, I have been looking for this part for three years, refuse to pay the dealer $80....


Update: Downloaded files (I think you only need the big one), but there is a lock on the files when accessing the file, so useless even if I found a shop with a 3D printer....does the shop that built yours still have the file on hand that you used?

$35 for the whole door, lock and key.

My part was 3D printed by Ely Scot Enterprises, LLC. I worked with Justin, the Director of Product Development. He was very professional and helpful throughout the process. If you're interested in using his company, I'd suggest that you email him. Here's a link to their website:

http://elyscot.com/

They may still have the 3D part files, I don't know. I had no problem downloading the files from:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27563

You will need both the small and the large parts 3D printed. Though I haven't installed it yet, from what I understand, the small part (essentially a plastic disc with a slot in the middle) slides onto the lock first. It is then rotated 1/2 turn. Then the large part slides on the lock and the small disc is glued or plastic welded to the large part, thereby securing the large part onto the lock.

From my brief handling of the 3D printed parts and the lock cylinder, I think there may be an issue with how the spring attaches to the new 3D printed part. The original plastic part had a plastic skirt that extend in towards the lock body, to which the spring attached. The new 3D printed part lacks that skirt. When I get around to installing the part, and attaching that spring, I'll post how I resolved the spring issue.

This doesn't appear to be a simple or perfect fix. But it may be the most economically viable fix, apart from purchasing a whole new lock.

That is excellent info about the 3D printer and making that arm. I could have used that last year, I looked for a long time but could not find that piece. So if it helps anyone what I ended up using was a small metal rod (hallow). Cut a notch in one end, slipped it over the metal T (part of the lock) and clamped the other end with a squeeze from some pliers. It ended up looking good, its functional and cost <$1.

I'll have to check. I have an 04 with no lock. The doors look the same, but there is no latch for the lock to grab. It may be as simple as changing the cap bezal to make it work. Be advised that I already sold the lock, but still have door. Will check when it get light on Tuesday.

I don't need the door. Will you take $20 for just the lock and key? By the way I started this thread lol.

I have had lots of interest on my locking door.

Just to be fair, I would rather sell the whole assembly, the door isn't very useful without the key, so I would rather keep everything together.

People have asked if there is a difference. Here are some pics that show what us what.

I found these locks on eBay for $55 delivered. Not bad compared to dealer price.
