Hi, you need to use pliers to rotate the white plastic part back to the metal prongs in order to refit the cap. This will continue to happen. You really need to replace the fuel cap before it gets stuck and you cannot remove it from the filler neck.

Let me know if you need anything else. Please click on a rating for my service when you are done.
