I need advice for re-assembly of my gas cap mechanism on my 05 Wee. The "gas cap set" was corroded as well as rust in the tank. I pulled the tank and removed the gas cap before de-rusting the tank and while in that process I did a tear down of the mechanism and let that soak as well. After removing all the pieces and setting them out, I noticed an extra spring and ball bearing that I hadn't seen before. There is a really small spring with a really small ball bearing for the flap detent that covers the key lock, but this is larger. My guess is that it works as a check valve for ventalation? I just don't know. BTW, I did a search for this and this mechanism was used on several different suzuki models through the years but I could not find a diagram showing the internals, only the whole set.

Thanks in advance,

Ken

Rob, thanks for posting this! I guessed right for the ball bearing placement but now I know where the spring needs to be :hurray:
