Unscrew the latch assembly by door jamb. On back of fuel door release, disconnect old cable. Take new cable into trunk and orient it correct way. Then get some strong tape and tape the fuel patch end to the broken end. Now pull the old cable through and the new one, now taped to it, will be in correct place. Then just connect it to associated parts.

So i can get access to the fuel door and cable by removing the carpeting on the drivers side in the trunk?

Hi John - yes. Don't remove the carpet per se - the trunk has a mat, remove that. Then the sides lift up to expose what is underneath.

I used packing tape and cleaned both cables before and used the tape to make it like one long cable.

It is one of the few jobs on an Alfa that I lucked out on and found to not have any snafu's.
