F15 X5 fuel door pot

 Ok I screwed up with the pictures order,,,,here I’m putting in a new fuel door pot which comes with a new fuel door actuator on a F15 X5 ,,,,when you replace the fuel door lock actuator you’re place the whole thing,,,,,now here comes the stupid part. So you see this little detent,,,,there is four of these one in each corner,,,,so you push these out so you can release the tabs and remove the fuel door pot.,,,,that part is ok. Now here is the stupid part,,,,once you have all 4 punched out it will look like this,,,,now the fuel door pot is useless,,,,,you must replace it,,,,you can not reuse it because you will have 4 stupid holes that you can not cover,,,,BMW does not have replacement plugs,,,,the new fuel door pot is complete,,,,soim you ever have to remove it for some reason like get the fill neck out or do some body work you can not reuse this part without have 4 visible holes when you open the fuel door.
