Fitting Aircraft Fuel cap

Hi - following on from a 'what are you doing during lockdown', I mentioned that I had an aircraft fuel cap, but was a bit nervous about fitting it. Looking at the existing Rover cap, and the filler neck behind - they seem identical, so all good there.

The thing I'm nervous about is I read threads on here that the little flap in the filler neck needs to be knocked out. Is this still the case?

Check this page, there are several useful information:

In French but easily understandable.

thanks 7SW - cap fitted. It was a 8/10 tricky job - but straightforward after looking at those pictures you linked to.
