Fuel Door

Postby kjc63 [OP] » May 06 2012, 9:31pm

Newbie here. I have a 2012 Silverado 1500. I just wanted to know if any of you have installed the GM chrome fuel door? Is it difficult to remove the stock one? What is entailed? Thank you. Kevin

I didn't install the GM Licensed chrome fuel door, but I did buy a chrome locking fuel door from eBay. The installation is not hard whatsoever, but on our NNBS, the fuel door is riveted onto the body, thus you must drill out the rivets in order to install the aftermarket fuel door. Other than that part, it's pretty straight forward. Good Luck!

Thanks AZ. When you drill out the rivets, does the whole assembly come out...door and swing arm? Thanks again.

i installed a gm door om my truck and the hardest part was center punching the rivets because, it would be easy to dent the metal because its not very thick where the door bolts on.
