Top tip! Water filler cap still removable when locked. I just discovered this on mine so started googling for a replacement but this lead me to the cure.
Put it in boiling water, this expands and releases the plastic components.
It worked a treat but I followed this up with a thorough dosing of silicon spray to make sure it stays that way. Found this on outandaboutlive forum and its saved me at least £20

Used this trick many times on car bumpers, wing mirrors etc, surprising how they spring back to shape
