How do i manually release the fuel door ? ( the dash remote release just stopped working )

The cable is accessed from the boot! No manual release but by removing the boot trim behind the petrol flap you will be able to reach the cable and pull on it to release the flap....probably just needs the cable lubricating with WD40!

Fuel flap stuck on my clio 55 plate

Get a flashlight so you can see where the catch is on the door. When you locate the mechanism you should be able to release it with a small screwdriver by depressing the locking tab.

Passenger front door does not open on a 2001 Cadillac Deville, but opens from outside

Your inside handle connects to the release mechanism with a rod.It's a steel rod about 3/16" diam. that will be connected to either the handle and not the release,or the release and not the handle.There's also a chance on a car that age that the connector on the handle has broken off because of years of use.
Carefully remove the inner door panel,look hard for hidden screws,then there's a plastic liner and sound insulation to remove,then you can get at the mechanics inside the door.The problem will be obvious,and not hard to reconnect if nothing is broken.
Good luck,let me know.

My gas flap is stuck closed. We had to pry it open yesterday to fill the tank. 2 months ago the same thing happened, but it has worked since then.

If you have fuel door release cable & door is open, verify that cable moves in & out when you activate it. If yes you can adjust tab that it rests on so it will release properly. Just bend tab slightly inward at first, till it releases correctly.

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri

In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic

The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

You can open it manually by removing the boot side panel and pulling on the actuator . But the fuel flap actuator is a common fault and change the cable at the same time . Quite a cheap job to do Regards VW Audi Tech
