There is a release in the boot (trunk).  It's a little green piece of the plastic about 12mm diameter that is stuck in the trunk lining just on the other side of the fuel filler.  Pry it out of the liner and pull on it.  That should open the fuel door.

How do i open petrol cap on bmw 525 diesl


The petrol flap doesn't have a lever to open it like other cars but can be opened when the car is unlocked by pushing on one side of the flap to open, if this will not open then the fuel flap locking actuator is faulty and has not unlocked the fuel flap, if this has occurred open the boot and on the left hand side of the boot you will see a round button, if you cannot see this and you only see a hole then chances are the side cover has been off at some stage and the button hasn't been reinstated, if it is there, pull on it and it will pull the fuel flap locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap.

How to open petrol cap


you may have to get into the boot and remove any trim to the filler tube area. This will give you access to the flap lock system that holds the door closed . If there is a solenoid there you may be able to manually pull the rod that releases the flap lock or move the whole thing to let the flap open

Central locking in my bmw 320 diesel isnt working it wont open the doors but it will start the engine , the spare key is the same so its not the battery of the keys


Providing central locking works when you insert key in lock,try programming keys
Enter car make sure all doors/windows are shut
Switch ignition on and off,remove key
PRESS AND HOLD UNLOCK BUTTON ON KEY
Press lock button on key 3 times whithin 10 seconds and release unlock
Central locking will lock/unlock rapidly to confirm reset
If your key is the type with bmw logo in the middle battery replacement is not possible,as it charges as you drive

My central locking stopped working and i cant get my petrol cap housing open to put petrol in to get it fixed! any ideas? any way of unlocking it manually? i have an audi a3 2001


On some cars you can unlock the door twice and this will release the petrol cap - otherwise you could check for a loose conection somewhere in the fuse box.

KEYS LOCKED IN THE BOOT OF A BMW 320 2003 REGISTERED


Hiya, same thing happened to me with my e39 2yrs ago. Keys were stuck in boot for 2days, in the end I sussed out how to get them.......you have to take off the reg plate, then, with a pencil, drag a line from where the key goes in down to the catch where the boot actually locks. Then you drill a hole anywhere along that line, this will give you access to the bar that connects the locking mechanism, just put a long nosed pliers into the hole and pull the bar, and bingo the boot opens!
