    Could someone show me a pic or two, how that clamp on the left should be mounted to the gas door hinge ? Can´t find any Pic on the web nor the shop manual.
    Thank you !!!!

  2. That's not a clamp, that's a spring and should go into the square opening in the hinge. You'll have to figure out which way to face it.

  3. Wonder if you could look on-line for a dealer brochure - should show someone opening the gas door on one of the pages and maybe show it.

    Only four choices. The right one will be the one you try last.
  6. Sorry - guess there are no HAMB people that own one or care to respond. Sadly I don't have a factory manual for one that shows the answer to your predict amnent.

    Bump up.......

    Thank you stillrunners. But I will give it a try. There´s nothing that really could go wrong. It works or not.
    If not, - next try.

    I know this doesn't help your problem now, but this is a great example of why pictures should be taken before disassembly. At work we take pictures of EVERYTHING before we take it apart. 6 months later after working on many other cars we have a reference on how to re assemble the part.
