Fuel Cap Locking bar broken

Hey, i recently took owner ship of a 10 plate cooper S, I love the car to bits and cant get enough of how nice it is to drive compared to other cars ive owned.

I filled up for the 1st time today and noticed that the fuel cap was always unlocked even when the car was, i took a closer look and found that the little bar that gets pushed into the cap via a solonoid when the car is locked has been broken off.

Is there any easy way for a nooby like myself to remedy this? if not how much will i be looking at from a dealer, ive had the car a week so dont believe i can really go back to the dealer i purchased it from as its abit out of time now.

Thanks,

I guess it depends on the kind of dealer you bought from, but if it's a reputable dealer a week isn't in the least too long to take it back and ask them to fix it.

I got in touch with them, they seemed slightly reluctant to help and said theyd look into it for me and havent even got back to me yet, its been a week since then. Any ideas?

A week is no time at all. The "dealer" must have known about the problem before you bought the car. Get back to them and ask them to fix it.

Unless you bought the car "as seen" and you signed a waiver to support this fact, there has to be a limited warranty on the vehicle, even if the limited warranty is valid for 3 months (or even a month!).
