You can buy a new one from SunCoast, Amazon or ebay for a few bucks. Haven't heard of one breaking before.

Can I pin mine to prevent this from happening? Is it a gas cap out procedure?

I'm part of this club. My gas cap refuses to be contained.

I just received the one I ordered from Amazon

Price:[color=#b12704 !important]$19.79[/color] FREE One-Day

DIY Tip:

Where the cable attaches to the metal body work, you need a needle nose pliers to pull the plastic expanding screw up away from the hole. Grip tight before you pull. It looks like it might be a Phillips head metal screw or Allen, but it's not.

I looked at that one. You bought the set where it comes with the new cap as well. I keep wanting the Alluminum look one but then realize it is only me that ever sees it.

I just set the cap on the window above the wiper. I think that;s the same thing I did when I was driving my Dad's 911's in the 70's.

I changed mine over the weekend. You don’t need to buy the clip. It’s a lien release clip so just push the center of the clip and the pin will fall out alllowjnf you to remove the stock clip a reuse. $20 and life is good again :-)
