Did you have to use the manual release? Did it work?

waiting for Fuel Flap actuator from Germany
had to do manual mode 2x during Targawest

Fuel flap cover was almost lost too as it slides into place.
Another thing that "almost" fell off

Items that have fallen off since new:
a) door reflectors
b) front right BMW badge
