How to Replace a Chevy Truck Fuel Door Spring Clip

How to Replace a Chevy Truck Fuel Door Spring Clip

In this video i explain how to install an OEM fuel filler gas door spring clip for my 1997 GMC Sierra K1500 pickup truck. The part that I used is an OEM 1552-1575. A link to the part is provided in the description below. According to the description, this part fits 1988 – 1999 GMC, Cadillac and Oldsmobile. I provide step by step instruction for removing the fuel door, inserting the clip and reinstalling the fuel door. I also highlight the importance of using penetrating oil when removing rusted screws. Because I neglected to use penetrating oil, I also had the opportunity to demonstrate how to remove a seized and broken stud from the fuel door mount.

Hey, it did show that it was very very difficult. But the part where you actually were successful you left out. You also never told how long it actually took you? So I really didn’t learn much other than it’s going to be very difficult.

Croiseeman says:

Very informative.

Hey Bud, I believe your broke that screw because you were tightening it…… Righty tightly remember? Good instruction. Started a bit rough.
