      Comments about Dorman - Help Universal Gas Cap Cable Tether:

      If you buy a Stant gas cap, DO NOT buy the Dorman tether kit. There is no hole on the Stant gas caps for assembly. It's not as universal as they make it out to be.

      Worked Just Fine

      from Dyer IN

      Comments about Dorman - Help Universal Gas Cap Cable Tether:

      My gas cap had a hole in the top where my original
      tether conected. Used the proper size plug to secure
      tether to gas cap and original screw for fram. The new tether is much more flexable than the old one.

          Comments about Dorman - Help Universal Gas Cap Cable Tether:

          This product is not made very well and after only a few days of use it fell apart. To be fair, it really is cheap, and never stood a chance of working. Right after I installed it, I had my doubts. They were confirmed the first time I bought gas and went to remove my gas cap...

          DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! A bread tie would work better.

              This part is universal and not a direct fit for your vehicle. This is a one size fits most.

              It attaches to the gas cap then to the body inside the gas cap door or to the door itself.

              Only chance is a dealer or junk yard. The chevy version of that Suzuki may give you some luck at a chevy dealer.
