gas filler door became hard to open - a part was ordered - not yet fixed is this a repair I can do myself?
Since day one I had to push harder to get the gas door out, but there is a service bulletin by Honda for this issue, replacing the little spring and mechanism. I haven't really push the issue with Honda but they know about it... :-0

I have 2009 Fit (Ontario, Canada - the mileage is actually kilometres and zip the nearest border to me) with exact same problem. Sometimes have spent 5 minutes trying to get the fuel door to pop open and this has been happening for at least 3 years intermittently. Sorry, don't know of a fix...
