Are you referring to part # 78120-5DA0A? MSRP is $135.58 USD, and it can be had for $87.99 USD.


I'm not familiar with any Euro parts sites, but perhaps a US site/dealer will ship to you if you cover shipping/customs?

For used parts we have auto wreckers that have damaged/totaled vehicles that they part out. There are a number of QX30's available on Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market for example.

Thank you so much! I’ll check it’s the correct part number with my engineer and then order. Most kind of you to take the trouble. Kind regards, Ian

Hi guys!

New to this forum. Joined because I had the same problem with the fuel flap a couple months after I got my used QX30 premium. Gladly, mine opened and closed randomly, but it still opens after a few tries. Did some research and found that this is a common issue with both QX30 and GLA.

so I stopped by a dealership and luckily they have this little guy. Problem resolved after replacing it. Model number 78850-5DA0C. Not sure what’s the difference though between this one and the model another friend found above.

When I took out the old actuator (very easy), it appears there’s water in there and rusty water can be shaken out. Wonder if that’s the reason why it failed. Does anyone know if there’s way to stop water from entering the actuator? I wouldn’t want to have to replace it every year or so....

The difference is that IanMag asked for the shroud, and the part you posted is the actuator. Two different things.

Hi. Welcome to the club! I have exactly same story to share about my Infiniti Q30 2016... Long story short..I Runned out of fuel, I got to nearest petrol station and I couldn't open my fuel flap in any way. Two big and very helpfull men tried to help me with it for an hour (one Shell's staff and some other customer who was kind enought), but unfortunately the only one way to get in was to break the flap (I already totally runned out of the fuel, so there was no chance to get to the nearest servise point or mechanics). After all, I went to Arnold Clark service point (that's where I got my car from) full of hope they may help me.... I was delusional unfortunately. First they said they will fix it for me and they even gave a choice between orginal part ( cost over £700) and not original (cost around £173) and of course I went for the second option. Due to Covid-19 I had to wait another 3 weeks, to find out a one day before appointment, that the only option to fix my flap is to send my car to the only in Scotland, Infinity garage in Glasgow (and I'm from Edinburgh 🙄and we do have lockdown so traceling to other city is banned) and I'll pay price for an original part, because not original are not avilable in UK.... oh well.. I spent few hours trying to find flap in UK on my own... and nothing.. And then I reminded myself, that I'm a Polish, middle age and self sufficient lady at the source, so I'll do it in polish way for a change😉. I researched polish market for second hand and brand new fuel flaps for my car and I found few in 10 mins!!(I assume it's because the Infinity is much more popular in Poland than in UK) I was also lucky to find right colour straight away for only 100 zl which is equally to £20! I also found a polish mechanic with his own garage ( recommended by friends), who agreed to fix it for no more than £100! Total estimated cost to fix (replaced) my fuel flap will be £120! At this point I'm waiting for my flap to arrive and hopefully, next week my car will looks like brand new again! Apart of this one situation, I never had any other problems with my Infinity q30 through last 3 years. I still love my car ! ;)... and I hope it will stay this way...
