Thanks for the warning. As it happens, I set about the job Saturday and the new filler cap and tube fit perfectly, once I managed to get the hose clamp out of the hole...9 raw knuckles later, it was a done job. I used silicone with some water repelling stuff added to it, but am wondering whether I got the seal tight enough and can remove the cap again and use 3M when I can get hold of some.

The new cap looks pretty though; all nice and shiny - wonder how long that'll last
