Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
The fuel cap door won't open when i pull the lever. The only way to open it was with one person holding the lever (next to the driver seat) and another person prying the door with a screw driver.
How can i fix ?
Mone would not open when the rubber deals that are just inside of the door rotted out, I replaced them and now it opens hahaha. No really I'm not kidding.

Hi, chances are that the cable to your fuel door relase mechanism is stretched, this often happens over time especially if the mechanism has been removed and replaced incorrectly. To fix this you will need to open the door with as little force as possible so you dont have to replace that too and have someone pull the lever so you can see if the mechan ism is moving freely, if it is it may be either a stretched cable or crooked mount , try re-mounting as this is the easiest thing to do, if that doesnt help then you may need to replace the cable. If the mechanism is corroded or stiff then remove the mechanism and spray with WD-40 or a similar lubricating/ freeing agent then leave it to soak in and try remounting the mechanism to see if this rectifys the problem. If the mechanism looks to be broken or severly corroded then replacing may be the only option. Goodluck!
