Default Ice Storm, Pryed Gas Cover and fell off

It was an ice storm, urgently needed gas , pried the hinge side instead of the other side and fell off

How do I put this thing back on. Is there a link? Thanks

My computer is not recognizing my camera so can't download until I figure out why but it appears the whole hinge is connected to the car still and the plastic thing that holds the hinge on the inside cover is gone. May need a new one.

The hinge is metal. It's bonded to the plastic door by a plastic tab. Most likely the tab broke off.

Your only option is a complete replacement door with hinge as there are no parts available. Used and aftermarket doors are readily available on the internet and Ebay. Find a used one of the same color. Think years 92-96 Camry/Lexus are the same.

Thank you, just ordered it and found one that was white. Take Care. Next time will use a deicer I will carry in the car instead of prying it open.

Doesn't take that low of temp to freeze the gas cap lid.

For Sure! Especially in this roller-coaster weather in the Midwest this season.

Just installed. Bought an OEM off ebay. For a change something I had to replace that was easy. Thanks Toyomoho.
