i need a locking gas cap!

Hi, i am looking for a locking gas cap for my '00 boxster. I know the gas lid locks, but mine has this horrible screaching sound(needs oil) when i lock it. Yes i could have someone take the car apart and put oil on it, but i figuire that the locking gas lid is so loose that anyone could pull it open with their fingers. So i would like to get a LOCKING gas cap, and then disable the gas cap lid/door thing somehow. This will definatly increase my security and eliminate the horrible screech...so does anyone know where i can get a locking gas cap for the boxster? thanks -kyle

I would think a Google search would turn up something. I have NOT seen anything OEM like but confess I never looked for one.

Hey, oil that door anyway!

Be careful. The locking gas door is part of the regular lock system and may be part of the alarm system too.

I personaly love hamann stuff. Try and find a Hamann gas tank lid, they are super sweet.
