    Default Looking for 505 petrol cap

    Hi everyone,

    Advertisement


    I have recently acquired a 1992 petrol 505 which is missing the petrol cap.
    The petrol cap area looks like this:
    Looking for 505 petrol cap-img_20160219_161322.jpg

    The inside diameter is about 41.3 mm. The cap is clearly a screw type.
    I went to Supercheap Auto, which have a good range of Tridon brand replacement caps, but Tridon doesn't list replacement caps for Peugeots.

    Any idea where I can get a replacement cap?

    I'll give EAI a call on Monday, but wanted to ask for some general advice. Is there just one petrol cap standard for 505s? Cheap options also considered.

    Thanks in advance,
    Hugo

    From 1986 up to at least 1988, 505s had a bayonet fitting. Don't know about pre 1986. So that's at least two types.

    The unleaded 505 has a different petrol cap to the leaded ones, at least in comparison with yours. From memory yours are a screw in type

    Any progress on this one? Is it possible the filler neck is not "native" to the car? Various searches in French and English have failed to bring up a male threaded cap for the 505.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I tried EAI, but they don't stock any fuel caps for the 505 any more. The guy there however confirmed that all unleaded vehicles had the same cap, presumably the screw type.

    The Tridon cap model TFNL227 that I tried at Supercheap Auto had a diameter of 45 mm, was listed to fit a Renault (R19 among others) and so I tried it, but it felt too large in diameter/wouldn't fit. Later I noticed in the Triton's PDF for fuel caps that there is also one cap with a diameter of 44 mm that I might try, although the pitch of the thread might be incompatible. Hopefully if it fits I will still be able to closed the petrol cap door.

    If the filler neck is "native" to the car or not - I don't know. Good question. I might try to contact the former owner to see if he knows. I wonder if it is a filler neck used internationally or one just used in Australia.

    Otherwise I'll try some wreckers.

    Thanks again and any more tips much appreciated. I think fuel caps are one of those variable parts, making finding a replacement harder than some other parts.

    Cheers,
    Hugo

    Is it a station wagon? they were the only 505's sold with a true threaded cap.
    Your picture doesn't show me a true thread.
    I doubt Tridon or any other local source will have what you need but I have S1 and S2 505's that I am wrecking and have almost certainly got the one you need.

    Hi ianrobbo,

    Yes, my 505 is a station wagon (I forgot to mention that above). The thread on the fuel inlet was about 3 turns of the thread, so maybe it is a true thread?

    I'll contact wreckers and let you know how I go. I'll try here in Melbourne first because I can try the part out to make sure it is correct before I buy.

    Cheers,
    Hugo

    There is only one threaded cap ever fitted to 505 wagons.
    I have 1 only available and they are very hard to find .
    Yours for $40 including post.

    Hi all,

    My mechanic Justin Fischer fortunately had one. In the very old looking orginal Peugeot spare parts bag! By the way, for future reference, the Peugeot part number is 1508 53.

    Ianrobbo, thanks very much for checking for the cap.

    Thanks for everyone's tips. Now I'll see how the newly acquired wagon goes.

    Cheers,
    Hugo

    Default 1508.28

    Hi Hugo,

    probably an issue that might afford changing the tankfiller also. 1508.17 would be the Australian version of he cap, 1508.28 is the Euro-version but, this is not a screwtype but a bajonett-lock. If it helps, I keep a new cap, also a used Euro-fillertube if necessary, can provide you with a pic of the Euro-version also.

    Just read the forth-running of the tread, also that it depends a wagon. If the problem is solved, fine, otherwise give me a notice

    cheers
