In this write-up we go over the simple installation process of adding a locking gas cap to your 1994-2009 Ford Mustang. Protect your car from gas thieves and pranksters with this simple, inexpensive modification. This install is very simple and straight forward. The only tool needed is a pair of pliers, total install time is less than 15 minutes.
Begin the install process by removing the OEM gas cap which is held onto the fuel door with a push pin. Take your needle nose pliers and gently pull out the push pin as shown below.
Once you have the factory gas cap freed, simply unscrew the cap as you normally would. The new gas cap is attached to the fuel door in the same manner as the OEM one. Simply take the push pin and use your finger to re-insert it into the hole on the fuel door as shown below.
Once the push pin is in, put the gas cap on and turn it clockwise until you hear it lock and you are done! IMPORTANT: It’s a good idea to keep a spare key inside your car as well as one on your keychain so you’ll be able to unlock the cap when you get to the gas station.
