DONT PULL IT WHAT NEVER YOU DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


its the emergency fuel cut off and electric power (in case your in a front end smash and the engine is still running or emergancy services need to ensure that no power is live in the car!!without having to unplug the battery..

HENCE why it is RED..

if you pull it im lead to belive you have to re-fit it and re agline it before you get the engine running again... its not worth the chance!!!!

UNLESS.... you want to give it a pull and let us all know what happens and how you sorted it?????/ '-)

Cheers

i maybe wrong... its not what i have read before tho.. (second hand information!!) .... however i can see your point as its on that side....... and the gas cover only locks via the C/locking??? so if your central locking fails for what ever reason theres a way into the fuel.....

do you want to give it a go?????

I will do a bit of research on this

Cheers
