Sounds like a trivial problem but can anybody tell me how to remove the cork washer from the inside of my gas cap? The cork has gone hard and fuel spews all over my nice tank and I wish to replace it.
Cannot figure how to remove the metal inner part and spring - the little metal loop (see uploaded picture) just rotates freely... Any ideas?

Try using one of the "dental pick" type tools. You can usually find them in a hardware store as a kit of 4. One of them should be able to get under the edge and start to break it free.

cork seal

OK thanks guys - the cork seal is fitted under the brass bit. I thought there might be a way to remove the brass bit but I will probably have to break up the cork seal and find a way of slipping in a new one.
