Guys, a little please....
my fuel filler cap does not lock, i'm sure i read somewhere that it should be locked when the centreal locking is on - is this correct?
the flap and the screw cap don't lock, i've only had the car a few days so don't know if this is correct or not. does anyone know?

The fuel flap door should lock with the central locking. Solenoid is behind the o/s boot carpet. Check 2 see if it's connected, burnt out or if the locking pin has snapped off etc...

Good Luck...

The round cap does not lock.
It would be too dangerous to have an electric solinoid activating and deactivating that close to the fuel line.
The door does though.

As far as I know, my 92 325i's fuel door does not lock, or does it?
