Fuel filler cap fell to bits

Went to fill car up, struggled to get cap off as it kept spinning rather 'clicking' as I took it off then got three pieces of cap in my hand. The yellow top, a black ring and plug. Got the black ring back into the top in what looks like a fit but can't connect the plug. The diesel doesnt spill because of the misfuel device. Any ideas before I have to give in and phone the main stealers. The car is under warranty as it is only just over a year old.

happened on my previous d4 under 6 months old. It was in SWMBO's care at the time and i just blamed her as she always just forces things and doesn't look how they actually work, maybe i was wrong Laughing

Didnt use any force at all, it was just spinning and then lifted the whole gubbins out. What did they do - just replace it or did they fix it??

Checked the car again and in the light I found a fourth bit - a black plastic ring shaped clip that was round the filler pipe. Pushed it all together and it seemed to hold - how long for who knows but has saved a 50+ round mile trip to the stealers.
