I have taken my 2018 RX450HL into Lexus three times to fix the issue of the fuel door not locking in the open position when I pull it open,it will just flop back. Is anyone else experiencing this?

We've had a variety of Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles over the past 30 years and none of them have had a fuel filler door that "locked" in the open position.  None of the fuel doors on the Mercedes, Honda and Volvo vehicles we've owned locked in the open position either.

Checked my 16 RX.  The door has some form of spring action holding it open.  If it will not stay open, the spring (regardless of what it is) is sprung or broken.

It (what ever they use to create tension)  isn’t visible from the outside.  Probably accessible when they pop off the rear left inside panel. Door is attached to an arm that is connected to something not visible from the outside.
