Mopar Fuel Filler Door

Hello,

I purchased what I believe to be a Mopar Fuel Filler Door on EBay from this seller:

07 14 Mopar Jeep Wrangler 4 Door Unlimited Black Fuel Lid Gas Filler Door | eBay

When I was installing it, I noticed there was a protrusion on the backside of the fuel filler door at about 9 o'clock if I recall correctly. However, there was nothing for that protrusion to fit into on the Jeep itself. Not at the 9 o'clock position; rather, my Jeep had a hole at the 12 o'clock position. So, I had to trim off the protrusion at 9 o'clock on the fuel filler door in order for it to fit flush against the Jeep.

So, did I actually buy a Mopar fuel filler door, or was it a Chinese ripoff? The auction seems to say it's actually a Mopar fuel filler door, but I could have read it wrong. For anyone who has actually installed a Mopar one, can you tell me about it? The one I installed, well, I can now turn it 360 degrees because there's really nothing holding it in one place.

That's weird. The hole for the protrusion is definitely @ the 9 oclock position on my 2014 and so was the OEM Fuel filler door. Check out this video. I time stamped it so you can see.

It looks like a knock off.

Difference is 2dr or 4dr. I got mine straight from the Jeep parts department and I had to clip off the locating pin too. Been that way for two years now. Meh.

Mine doesnt move unless I try to move it I suppose. All these fill ups and washes and its never budged. I may have put a dab of black RTV sealant on it just to hold it in place. Cant remember. Pic looks like mine though with the castings inside the flap on the ad. No knock off is going that far into detail

I have purchased several Mopar parts from King Chrysler Jeep Dodge on eBay and none of them have been Chinese knockoffs. I would contact them directly and explain the problem you are having. They tend to be very responsive.

Yeah, I have a 2 door. So, you have a 2 door and had the same problem? My Jeep has a hole at the fuel filler area. If I recall correctly, it was not at 9 o'clock but at 12 o'clock. Was yours at 12 o'clock?

That's good to hear. Maybe it is a difference between 2 door and 4 door, like the other member suggested.

Yeah, I ordered a 4 door version thinking it was the same :/ I shaved it off too but ended up returning it to amazon to get the correct one. Kind of lame, I don't understand why they would have 2 different versions! Maybe since the paneling on the body is longer/different on the 4 door it was one of the ways to differentiate them?

Probably its been a while. Yeah its a two door. Like I said, I clipped it down and its been fine now for about two years never moves. Filler doors are great and really finish off that corner.

Hebrew hammer. Great movie!

There are two different part numbers for the satin black cover:

2 Door: 82210285AB
4 Door: 82210609AB

I am assuming there must be a difference between the two covers considering this fact.

Just wanted everyone to know that the EBay part from that seller was an authentic Mopar part, for a 4-door. Problem was I have a 2-door. I thought they would be the same, but the notches are in different locations for 2-door and 4-door. So that was my bad. Also, there is a difference in design in how the fuel door secures to the body of a 2-door versus a 4-door. You can use a 4-door fuel door on a 2-door. You simply have to break off the protrusion, which means that the 4-door fuel door will be able to spin freely (with minimal force applied) while mounted on the body.

Anyway, I mangled the sheetmetal around the fuel door while trying to get the 2-door fuel door (which I bought ) mounted on the Jeep. I think I need to get some flat-faced pliers to straighten the sheet metal out again, and then apply some touch-up paint. So I bought yet another 2-door fuel door and going to give it another go when it arrives. Ugh, what a mess. The 2-door fuel door is really tough to mount if you don't do it right the first time.

Dont use pliers. Go get a soft rubber mallet and a piece of wood and put the wood in through the back side by the tail light and work it flat. Pliers will f up the paint and tweak it worse.

Thanks for the advice. I'll do that first and only use pliers as a last resort. I wasn't going to use the pliers directly on paint. I was going to pad it with tape or something else to protect paint as much as possible.

There's one little area that seems to be pinched...but hopefully the wood and rubber mallet take care of it. I'll be careful though.

So you ordered the wrong part, cut off the alignment pin and sent it back anyway? Kind of lame? Very lame.

Locater pins

I ordered mine from ebay as well but it had two locater pins; one at 12 and one at 9. I merely clipped off the unwanted one like others did.
And, like many others apparently did, I somehow managed to break the correct locater pin during install. But it still does not rotate freely as you mentioned.
There are four points at which the door's 'frame' snaps over the body so if even one of these is not fully snapped into place it may be able to rotate. The upper lefthand tab proved to be the most difficult one for me to get snapped in completely.
I would highly recommend reading the entire Jeep logo fuel door from ebay A+ thread so that you are aware of some of the pitfalls of this seemingly simple install beforehand.

eBay fuel door

I'm a little late to this discussion but I purchased one of these fuel doors for under 40 bucks from eBay. I read all the reviews and made my purchase with my eyes wide open. It is definitely a knockoff but fairly well made and I only bought it because I had some other mods I wanted to do and spending the $$$$ at the stealer ship for one was nuts.
I ordered it and it came in about 6 days. It said it is supposed to ship from NJ but really came from CA. Things I noticed right away was the plastic was a little more "tinny" than the OEM ABS plastic and the mopar symbol was stamped with the mopar wording flipped over. Not a big deal. It installed rather easy, I took my time. The aluminum screws were tricky to get lined up. But I took my time and it was ok. I did not torque them as requested by instructions. So far the only problem I have noticed is a very small gap in the 1 o'clock area of the cap. Barely noticeable. I contacted the seller and they refunded me a few bucks. So far I've been pretty happy with it. Mine also came with the two indexing tabs. I snipped the 12 o'clock one off and was real careful not to break the other one off. So far so good.

This shows the small gap between the fuel door flange and the body.
