I have an issue with the gas cap on my 1998 SLK230. There was an issue where I could not unlock and remove the cap (the teeth were misaligned – so when I twist the cap it would not open – I had to apply force). I then replaced it with a brand new cap and it’s also misaligning. I’m puzzled to why this is happening? Has anyone experienced this problem? If so, how did you resolve?

Does sound like you may have cross threaded it at some point which would mean any new cap would follow the 'new' route and misalign. If that was the case, I would suggest one of those plastic replacement caps that just goes in the fuel pipe and clamps itself shut as you twist it?
