Had my GLA just over a year and love it. Recently when I start the car the fuel filler flap opens and I have to physically shut it. I have tried various combinations and factory reset but the problem prevails spasmodically. Any one any thoughts to remedy this?

I posted this on the main forum in April
"Had a strange problem fixed this morning. Everytime I started the engine the fuel filler flap opened. As long as I closed it with the engine running, the central locking, when it activated automatically, kept it closed (and it didn't open when the Eco stop start started in traffic). Fixed at the dealers very quickly by fitting a new filler flap motor. I got the feeling that this wasn't the first time the dealer had seen this problem - they had a motor in stock! The flap opening looked like an air brake deploying. Car is a GLA 220cdi."
Hope this helps
