Like for filling up with gas? For my '03 you have to lift up a little metal cover, put in the key and turn it to get the gas cap to open up... but the key won't come out at this point... it stays locked in the cap until you close the cap after gassing up and the key will turn back on its own... then you can pull it out of the cap.

Was this what you were lookin' fer?

See those two metal tabs on the underside? The ones that lock against the tank to prevent it from opening, and are ramped on the underside?
Just take a look at it, you'll see what I'm talking about. Grab a pair of large pliers or channellocks and pinch them together as if the cap were closing.

You want to powdercoat your gas cap?
Yes, but I don't want to send my key out. Tripage said to squeeze the rubber ring underneath and it should pop out.

Did you do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just squeeze the rubber ring on the bottom and the key will turn back and you can pull it out.. If your looking at the ring, just push it towards the key...

Thats what you got to do. It's trick sometimes but thats how you do it. I've had mine off a few times and took the key out.

Thank you guys for the help. It came out just by pushing up on that seal.
