I have tried already and there is no info.

That's why I am asking.

I know many members got this kit but still no one have detail instructions with pics of the complete installation.

Somewhere online I read instructions for the fuel door, I remember them saying that routing the cable was the hardest part. I just routed a chunk of 4 gauge copper from my trunk to my battery tonight and it was a piece of cake, so the fuel door should be way easy!

Brian has instructions on routing the cable and I have pics on how to put in the spring for the door. I've sent the info to be put on the AZScooby but it isn't up yet. I'm about to send you the info I have.

OK well I was going to send it until I just discovered you don't have your e-mail in your profile. e-mail me direct for the pics of the spring install, but here is the text of the message I was going to send:

Yet another mod that Brian pioneered, I liberated and added my twist to. The pictures that follow are only how to add the spring to the tabbed door flap and of the pull handles. If you want to see how to run the cable, hop to this page:
http://members.nbci.com/_XMCM/northu...za/gas/gas.htm

Brian did a good job of documenting that part. The only thing I would add is this. I didn't remove the filler neck to remove locking pin. If after you remove right inside trunk liner, you can reach up to the locking pin (the white pin mechanism that holds the door shut) from the inside, grab the pin and give a twist, pull and remove it. Then you can put the pin in that has the cable release. No need to take the filler neck out. Also, when snaking the pull cable I removed the drivers side seat to make it easier to get at everything.

Also a word about the door flap. I'm still trying to get a door that is flat, with no tab. The flat door was standard on the 93-95 Impreza's. Currently the only way I know of getting one is from an auto recycling center. Those doors have the release spring already installed. If you can't find one either, you'll have to add one to the existing door like I did. I used a Dremel w/ a cutting wheel to enlarge the hole in the door tang. Then I used a drill to put a hole in the plastic thing that goes over the tang so the pin could go in there and lock. I put some touch up paint around the cut surfaces. You won't be able to see the cuts but I didn't want any rust to start. To do the work on the door you'll have to remove it. There are 2 phillips screws that hold it on. Before I removed the door I traced around the hinge so I would put it back on in the proper place. It turned out that it wasn't necessary, the screw holes aren't slotted. It only goes back on one way.

I purchased all my door release parts from Lisa at Troncalli Subaru as a kit. She can be contacted here:
[email protected] or you can find the site in our links section.

Hey Peaty, ask Dutch555 for a flat door with no finger tab. $35US and $14US to ship. Add another $30US if you want it painted. Drop him a PM.

I think it will be a lot cheaper to find a junkyard that will sell me one for around 5 or 10 bucks. The one with tab is working fine now so I'm just waiting till I find one. 80 bucks is a lot to pay for just a fuel door I think.
