thank you for your response I managed to get the fill plug back in as the hole was slightly misaligned do have had to use a small star crew driver to centralise it and tightened the filler plug.The car won't now engage in park and so won't start. The gear lever moves into Reverse and Forward.It is a scenic 1.6 VVT Privilege Hatchback. The registration number is ***** EPD.2007 model Petrol.
