Guide Bushing for Fuel Door Release Rod

The title part is missing on my car so when I lock the car, the fuel door release rod does not properly enter its resting place and the fuel door remains unlocked. I have ordered the title part from Pelican and the question is: has anyone actually replaced this part and, if so, do you have any tips on how to do that? The space to work on this is extremely limited and I was wondering if there were any tips on how best to get that guide bushing inserted.

The photographs make it pretty clear that it doesn't require any fasteners and that it should be easily press fitted into its resting place. There is a flat side on the part that will need to be appropriately aligned with its counterpart on the car.

I agree. I did this recently. You should be able to figure it out once you open the fuel door and are holding the new part. When you open the fuel door you’ll have all the access that you need.

Couple things to note: the flat part of the guide will be on top. Also make sure the plastic hoop that connects to the manual fuel door release is attached before sliding the new guide into place
